The Vejle Bridge

Straddling the Vejle Inlet is the magnificent Vejle Bridge, which was inaugurated on 1 July 1980. The bridge over the Vejle Inlet is a classical example of a cantilever bridge. Designed to visually melt into the landscape, the bridge is carried by 15 piers with the longest between-pier span reaching 110 metres. The clearance to the sea is 40 metres.

The Vejle Bridge is 27.6 metres wide and has a total length of 1,712 meters, which makes it Denmark’s sixth-longest bridge. The bridge is today Denmark’s most heavily congested motorway bridge. An average of 50,000 cars cross the bridge daily. 

The Vejle Bridge can be experienced at close range from the deer park in the woodlands of Nørreskoven.
