very nice pictures, I especially like Copenhagen's water side development, the modern architecture and so.

The Turning Torso needs a bit of company.

Here's a pic I took of København, Hovedbanegaarden (Central Station) from Istedgade, one of my favorite places in the city.

Yes, there is a toll if you go by car (not by train).

A single trip is 235 DKK ~ 40 USD ~ 32 EUR ~ 53 AUD, but there are discounts if you use the bridge a lot.

Yep, the price is steep and has been debated heavily! Some politicians want to get rid of the toll altogether, but I guess there has to be some toll in order to pay for the cost of the bridge, unless they want to increase taxes even further.

That is also why the trains are very popular!

i guess they can charge whatever they want unless they block previous ways of crossing the water such as removing ferry services or other transport which i think would be wrong.

To be honest, €32 to cross that bridge is a scam. I can fly to Rome from Frankfurt for that price, including taxes.

How much is the train journey between Malmo and Stockholm?

It is!
For that price one could also fly Copenhagen-Berlin with Sterling Air, and for a little extra Oslo or Southern Europe...

The train over is €10
The more you travelthemore yousave starting from 5 person's oneway or 2.5 return

You have to remember that Scandinavia in general, and Copenhagen in particular is extremely expensive overall - but still, the toll to cross the bridge by car is still too high.

The train ride, however, is about €10 which is more "okay". I pay about €180 for a monthly pass on the commuter trains.

Justme,
A train ride between Stockholm is approximately €60-70, ie. it's much cheaper to fly (which most people do).

I got nothing against Low cost carriers, but I rarely use them because of bad service and no privileges for frequent flyers - I'm loyal towards SAS and have milage status according to that.

The lord mayor of Copenhagen said the other day that the price is to high and that she would try and do something about it in the fall. The problem is apparently, that the prices were calculated and planed when people thought that mostly comercial trucks would use the bridge, as an alternative to the ferry, and therefor the prices were kept pretty high on porpuse, so not to create a double polution. Even experts agree on this and say that they the prices should be regulated, as to fitt what the bridge is mainly used for now...As do many politicians. So I think we will se some reduction in price, but so far Sweden has been against the idea and both parties need to agree....

thanks for the info guys.

€10 is still pretty steep for a train journey, I presume that is one way. IS the €32 bridge toll also one way?

I don’t really understand the issue with trucks. This is easily solved by having a separate toll for trucks and cars. Cars should be between €2-€5, anything over is blatant rip off, for trucks, they can charge as they like. If they charge too much, it will hinder the metropolitan economy.

Justme,
Here's a link to the prices on the official website:
http://osb.oeresundsbron.dk/document...t.php?obj=3198

As you can see, the return fare is €64 if you don't have a BridgePass, which most people have. If you got this pass, a single journey is €17.

The prices are of course different for trucks, motorcycles, cars, cars with trailers and so on. It's all there on the website.

And yes, it is expensive - like everything else around here.
