Top tip: Visit Denmark and Sweden in one day

Can’t get enough of Scandinavia? Why not take a day trip to Sweden? Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö are separated by the famous Øresund Bridge. Cars, trains and buses can travel over the bridge. It takes between 36 and 60 minutes to cross the bridge, depending on the mode of transport – so it’s perfect for a day out.
