Öresundburg from the ferry

Sailing under the Öresund Bridge

Seen from the Öresund Bridge, ships are very small. This effect is even stronger at the Store Belt bridge. We took this photo from the Travemünde-Malmö ferry. Beautiful during the day but also impressive to see in the dark.

  • Store Belt bridge

    If you travel to Sweden by car, you will not only use the Öresund Bridge . If you drive the Hamburg - Flensburg - Kolding - Copenhagen - Malmö route via Northern Germany, you will also pass the Store Belt bridge . A real monster of a bridge. High and long. This distance is 472 KM. You should therefore take into account more hours in the car, fuel costs and extra tolls on the Store Belt. You should also take an overnight stay into account somewhere.

  • Fredrikshavn

    A completely alternative to the Öresund Bridge is to drive from Germany to Fredrikshavn, Denmark. Your route will then be Hamburg - Flensburg - Kolding - Aalberg - Fredrikshavn. In Fredrikshavn you can take the ferry to Gothenburg and enter Sweden there. Remember that you will not arrive in Skåne. A great starting point for your onward journey to Norway, Dalarna or Lapland. You can also drive the kilometers to Gothenburg from Malmö, those roads are parallel. The difference is mainly in the costs of the ferry compared to the costs of the Öresund Bridge.

  • Öresund Bridge and the ferry

    As an alternative to the Store Belt bridge, you can choose the ferry between Puttgarden Germany and Rødby Denmark. In this case too, you must add the costs of this ferry to the costs you incur on the Öresund Bridge. From Hamburg to Malmö the distance by road is 375 KM. Our experience is that the ferry here is often pricey. A very nice and not too long crossing, but at the end of the day, after driving the kilometers, an overnight stay is also on the to do list. The entire area, between Germany and southern Sweden, is known for its often windy conditions and the Fehmarnsundbrücke can also be closed spontaneously.

  • Ferries between Germany and Sweden

    No less spectacular are the ferry connections between Germany and Sweden. There are various ports that offer departures from Germany. You can also choose from various shipping companies and various ships. One of the advantages of the ferry connections is overnight sailing. While you sleep you are in motion. Ferry tickets are often not very cheap, but if you book in time you may be able to get a fairly affordable ticket for the crossing. You will often see that we can help you with this with our travel packages and we often advise you to make use of this.
