Oresund Bridge, Copenhagen

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Oresund Bridge and other attractions that appeal to you using our Copenhagen vacation planner.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Stupid border control and annoying interrogations from customs going to Sweden. Often lines due to only a few lanes available, because of the I'd control. Super expensive to make it just perfect.
  • 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
