The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link is a permanent and direct road and rail connection between Scandinavia and continental Europe crossing the 20 kilometre wide waters of the Fehmarnbelt and is expected to bring economic benefits to the entire region around the Fehmarnbelt.
The Link will run from Rødbyhavn in Denmark to Puttgarden in Germany next to the existing ferry connection. The opening of the Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link will reduce travel time with 30 minutes eliminating the time spent on embarking, disembarking and waiting for ferries. The rail connection is part of the European TEN rail network and will reduce the travel distance with some 120 kilometre.
