The Zeeland Bridge (Dutch: Zeelandbrug) is the longest bridge in the Netherlands. The bridge spans the Oosterschelde estuary. It connects the islands of Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland in the province of Zeeland.

The Zeeland Bridge was built between 1963 and 1965. It has a total length of 5,022 metres, and consists of 48 spans of 95 metres, 2 spans of 72.5 metres and a movable bridge with a width of 40 metres.

The province of Zeeland paid for the construction of the bridge, and the costs were recovered by levying tolls for the first 30 years.

This is one of the three (four) bridges spanning the IJssel river at the city of Zwolle. This one carries the Zwolle - Amersfoort railway line, and opened in 1864. It is currently replaced by a new, higher fixed bridge, which is visible in the background.
