Øresundsbroen

The Øresund Bridge

New Bridge Between Sweden and Denmark



Address:
Øresund
Copenhagen,

Description

The Oresundsbro bridge opened to create a new connection between the neighbouring countries of Sweden and Denmark on 1 July 2000. Along with a new highway on Amager and a fast train connection from the Central Station across Amager to Sweden, Oresundsbro unites the two countries not only geographically, but also culturally. The bridge is a hanging construction, beautiful in its engineering simplicity. The turns it takes across Oresund make the experience all the more extraordinary when you cross it. The bridge has so far not had the greatest possible success, because the users - especially the Danish ones - complain about the high prices for crossing. But the management is working on it, and price changes are on their way in the near future. The bridge makes it possible to take a day trip to the Swedish side, where a lot of exciting places await you. The shopping facilities in Malmo are quite good too.
