Land route to Copenhagen

If youdon't want to take a ferryfrom the Danish mainland to Copenhagen , you can also cross the Great Belt by land: the Storebelt Bridge (Danish: Storebæltsbroen), built between 1988 and 1998 , connects the Danish islands of Funen and Zealand over a distance of around 18 km. The bridge consists of three parts: a 6.8 km long eastern bridge, the island Sprogø and another 6.6 km long western bridge. Due to the bridge that was opened in 1998, the car trip from Flensburg to Copenhagen takes only 3 hours, and in another 15 minutes, one gets over the Öresund Bridge to Malmö.
