The Erle Strait Bridge, which spans 16 kilometers and connects Copenhagen, Denmark, with Malmo, Sweden's third largest city, started construction in 1995 and completed in May 2000, is the largest cable-stayed bridge in the world. Starting from Malmo, a man-made island has been built in the Strait. A section near Copenhagen is an undersea tunnel with railways and highways. Therefore, the bridge consists of three parts, including eight kilometers of bridges, four kilometers of man-made island roads and four kilometers of undersea tunnels. The eastern part of Denmark and the southern part of Sweden that it connects will become the most intensive, economically active and culturally frequent areas of international metropolitan agglomeration in Nordic and Baltic regions. We traveled from Malmo to Copenhagen by bus through the Ere Channel Bridge. Because we did not stop by bus, we couldn't get a panoramic picture. We saw the road and helicopter apron on the artificial island, and passed through the submarine tunnel. We only got a few unlike pictures. The construction of the bridge makes the traffic between the two places very convenient. We returned by ferry.
The Erle Strait Bridge, which spans the Erle Strait, connects the two metropolitan areas of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, with Malmo, the Swedish city. The 8-kilometer-long bridge is one of the busiest rivers in the world. It's very spectacular. Standing on the coast at sunset and looking at the sunset and the Erle Sea-Crossing Bridge are really infinitely beautiful.
Such a striking bridge and yet it's rather difficult to see up close. Visitors to Copenhagen or Malmö will find themselves quite far away from it. However, you can sometimes see it from above when flying in and you can also take boat trips on the strait. If you don't have a rental car, taking the train across is a fun way to get a sense of its scale (as well as a speedy route across the Sweden/Denmark border).
The Øresund Bridge is an engineering marvel. I'd seen a documentary about it's construction before I first went to Copenhagen, so I was able to pick out various parts of it and its construction yards as I flew in.To visit Malmö, I took the train from Copenhagen, which goes under the roadway of this bridge.
Engineering on a massive scale, and very pretty on a sunny day, provides the link road between Sweden and Denmark. So much quicker than a ferry.
Traveling by car, the road trip can get pretty boring... that is until you arrive on the Oresund Bridge. It's 10KM of up in the air... On a bad day with the wind blowing and the rain pouring it's a white knuckled stressful drive. On a clear day, it's amazing!Bring money for the toll... it's a great alternative to taking the ferry across. The views coming up to and after are nothing substantial, but for engineering nuts it's a sight to behold!
