The Öresund Bridge is one very impressive piece of architecture and it is the scenic way of getting from Copenhagen to Malmö by car or train.  But surely the symbolic meaning is even greater, given that in days gone by the province of Skåne was part of Denmark and the Swedes and Danes were at each other’s throats.

Thankfully they are pals now

The Öresund Bridge is a combined rail and road bridge. The first 8 kilometres is on the bridge, the final 4km is through the world’s longest underwater tunnel that takes you to the artificial island of Peberholm. Do it by car or take the train, but whatever you do, experience the Öresund Bridge when you’re in Malmö.

But why are we telling you all this?

An expert narrator guides you around the city as seen through the eyes of The Bridge; you’ll visit locations, hear anecdotes and learn about set design, as well as see clips from the series.
