This magnificent feat of engineering crosses the Øresund Strait, commonly called the Sound, between Copenhagen and Malmo, Sweden. The 8 km (5 mile) long structure carries railway passengers and cars. Part bridge, part tunnel, the Øresund opened in 2000 and accommodates nearly 17,000 vehicles on a daily basis. Visitors to Denmark use the bridge as a convenient gateway to Sweden. Many come simply for the experience of crossing the bridge. Those flying in to Copenhagen shouldn’t miss the opportunity to glimpse the bridge from the air.
