Øresundsbroen

Øresundsbroen, an international bridge between Denmark and Sweden

The Øresund Bridge is a new link between Denmark and Sweden. This spectacular bridge connects the towns of Amager and Oresund in Denmark (on the island Zealand) with Skane, in Sweden. It has a length of 10 miles (16,4 km). It's one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. 

The toll station is located on the Swedish side of Øresund. The surface of the bridge is asphalt. This is the road connection between the metropolitan areas of Copenhagen and Malmo. The bridge runs nearly 8 kilometres (5 miles) from the Swedish coast to the artificial island of Peberholm, which lies in the middle of the strait, for 4km. The remainder of the link is by a 4 km (2.5 miles) tunnel from Peberholm to the Danish island of Amager.

The Øresund Bridge offers a 4-lane road carrying 6 million vehicles per year, and two train tracks (another 8 million people each year). The opening of the Öresund Bridge in the year of 2000 made non-stop travel between mainland Europe and Sweden a reality. It is one of the greatest structural achievements in Europa, a striking landmark mejestically spanning the Öresund. Built between 1995 and 1999, this is one road you need to drive, if you’re not scared off by the huge tolls.
