Öresundsbron, connects Malmö and Copenhagen

By car or rail via the Öresund bridge

The 16 km/10 mile bridge and tunnel links Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, with Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, and takes both car and rail traffic.

A one-way ticket (BroPass) across the bridge for a car shorter than approx. 19 feet/6 meters costs SEK 179. Direct rail services to other cities in Sweden, including Stockholm, also operate across the bridge.

For more information on the bridge, accurate prices and the Öresund region, see their website

The fastest rail route from the UK to Sweden is via the Eurostar service through the Channel Tunnel from London (St. Pancras) or Ashford International (Kent) to Brussels, with onward trains to Copenhagen for connecting services to Sweden. Through trains operate from Copenhagen to destinations in Sweden via the bridge and tunnel across the Öresund strait.
