The truth is it was a treat to see this impressive bridge from a different perspective from the rest of mortals. During my last cruise when passing from Sweden to Denmark the captain suddenly told us that we would have a unique opportunity to see something special. So we went up on deck and we are delighted with the information he gave over the PA as we approached the bridge. He said for example, that the bridge has 2 train tracks and 6 lanes of highway, it was completed in 2000 and opened by the Queen of Denmark and the King of Sweden, it measures 204 m high and 7845 m long. It takes 25 minutes to cross by train and 15 by car.
