Oresund Bridge, Copenhagen

#9 of 89 in Sightseeing in Copenhagen
Bridge Architectural Building
Drive or take a bus ride across Oresund Bridge, the longest cable-tied road and rail bridge in Europe. Spanning about 8 km (5 mi), the structure runs from the Swedish coast to an artificial island in the middle of the Oresund Sound. An underwater tunnel completes the crossing to the other side of the sound, linking the metropolitan areas of Copenhagen and Malmo. The bridge consists of two railway tracks and four road lines supported by tall concrete towers that allow 57 m (187 ft) of headroom for ships passing beneath the structure. Avoid long delays on the bridge by checking current traffic and weather conditions before you hit the road.

  • The first viz I saw that bridge was on the plane and not understand anything to see her being swallowed by the sea. For those who do not know, she connects Sweden to Denmark and half of it is about the sea and the other half under the sea. Worth checking out the plane and also pass through it, either by train or car.

  • It took more than 100 years before stollarna in Stockholm decided that a fixed link between Malmö and Copenhagen must become a reality. Now it has been around for almost 20 years, and all agree that it is the best thing that happened. 20 minutes to Copenhagen Airport and a few minutes longer to central Copenhagen. No matter if you travel by train or choose to drive yourself. That said, so nice to see

  • The bridge is pretty awesome to drive across, because of its size, length and spectacular views. The only downside is the expensive toll at the end of the bridge (Sweden end). I believe it was the equ...  more »

  • The best bridge in the world. I love it so much I go over it more than twice a month. Some people even go see it every day. It is so popular some politicians die to get the Malmö and Copenhagen police to work together.
  • If I could give it 10 stars, I would! It's the most unique bridge I've ever seen, and a must-see for anyone travelling between Copenhagen and Malmo.
  • An amasing construction, very impressive, both via car and rail.
  • nice view, the toll by car is 50€ (april2017) to cross in one way, and 50€ for come back (the only have one way ticket), too mutch imo. Coming from Danimak to Sweden theres a sort of custom and they ask for ID, coming from Sweden theres no one. Enjoy
  • One of the longest and prettiest bridges Ive ever crossed . There is even a nice spot on the side closer to Copenhagen where you can stop and take some nice photos

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
