Fan of The Bridge TV series? Come to Malmö to discover the Öresund Bridge. While you're here you’ll probably become a fan of the rest of Skåne too.

The Öresund Bridge is a combined rail and road bridge. Travel the first 8 kilometres on the bridge, then the final 4km through the world’s longest underwater tunnel that takes you to the artificial island of Pepparholmen. 

Great symbolic meaning

Driving along the coast of Skåne you see the bridge's imposing silhouette rising above the water. Get the best view of the Öresund Bridge from the lookout point at Luftkastellet. But the best way to experience the bridge is to drive across, traversing the dark blue sea between the tall pillars. Failing that, check into Ribersborg’s open-air bath and adjacent sauna and marvel at the view of the bridge and Copenhagen beyond. 

The Öresund Bridge is an impressive piece of architecture and it is the scenic way to get from Copenhagen to Malmö by car or train. The symbolic meaning is greater, as the province of Skåne was once part of Denmark and the Swedes and Danes were occasionally at war.
