Photographer's Note

The Øresund Bridge, which opened up for traffic in July 2000 is unique since it connects two countries, Denmark and Sweden.

For more than a houndred years the two countries planned a fixed link between Malmø and Copenhagen but one obstacle after another graveled the plans, until now. The bridge is a combined bridge and tunnel and one of the largest constructions in Europe with its 8 kilometre bridge, 4 kilometres artificially made island, called Pepparholmen, and a 4 kilometres long tunnel.

The Øresund Region is one of today's most important and dynamic areas in Europe in terms of growth and environment. The bridge is only the beginning ! Within a radius of about 100 km there are roughly 3.5 million people.

You can cross the bridge by car or take the Øresund-train to the former Danish town Malmø, in less than 20 minutes!
