Oresund Bridge, Copenhagen

(4.3/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • An impressive construction, in part bridge, part tunnel in the sea, on a few km. Possibility to cross by train or car. Must do once! Paid. If necessary ID card travel from Denmark to Sweden.

  • This bridge was fantastic. It was really expensive but as I only crossed it once, totally worth the price. I had a really positive experience being up so high above the ships and the windmills with the strong gusts rocking the car back and forth before eventually transitioning into a tunnel mid-crossing. Very cool!
  • Really beautiful bridge that connects to malmö sweden and copenhagen denmark. Its very impressive.but its very costly. Tollgate robbed us for 150 singapore dollar😜
  • Famous from the TV series the Bridge, the bridge connects Malmö with Copenhagen- the bridge has two decks with the trains traveling on the lower deck and vehicle's on the top deck. Quick and easy connection between two great cities.
  • Bad location. My family sat down at our table and got hit by a truck. Otherwise good service.
  • Amazing piece of engineering, we were surprised how long it took to cross to Sweden. Bucket list must do... an outstanding piece of civil engineering.
