If you drive to Sweden by car, the trip from Puttgarden on the German island Fehmarn to Rœdby (Denmark) is one of the most popular car routes; then after about a 1.5 hour drive through Denmark, you only have to drive across the Öresund Bridge and will arrive in the south of Sweden already.

Avoiding Öresundbridge and tunnel on the way to Sweden

Afraid of driving through tunnels or over high bridges? If you want to avoid Oresund Bridge, including the tunnel, you can also take the ferry from Helsingør (Denmark) to Helsingborg (Sweden) approximately 50 kilometers north of Copenhagen. Travel time by ferry is about 20 minutes only.

However, a trip across the Oresund Bridge is recommended at this point; the crossing is a first real highlight of a trip to Sweden.
