Description

Whether you have a special interest in bridges or not, driving across Storebæltsbroen is an experience not to be missed. When it was opened in 1997 it was the largest suspension bridge in the world, but has now been surpassed in size by a Japanese construction. Driving between the beautifully shaped columns (which are the same height as the Eiffel Tower), visitors just can't help but be impressed. This masterpiece of engineering is made of concrete and touches land mid-point, on the island of Sprogø. A cheaper way to travel the bridge is by train, but if you travel by train you will miss out on the spectacular experience as the train uses a tunnel underneath.
