Being from the area I know the value of this fit people and enterprises on the large island Öland. Using boats or ferry to get goods to mainland old people tell about all problems. This bridge has now been there for decades and is a help if you as tourist want to get to the island easily. If in area... More

As you can see, it is actually hard to enjoy the bridge whilst on it. Driving a narrow lane at 100 km/h requires attention to other things... But of course, the passengers can enjoy a nice view of the Kalmar strait (Kalmarsund), Öland and the city of Kalmar. However, if you want to have the best view of the bridge,... More

Even if you do not intend to visit the lovely Island of Öland, It still is good idea to drive on this bridge. About 6 K long It offers a great view. Mostly you have to pay for bridges like this, but here It is free. You can pass the bridge by bus or car but NOT by bycicle or... More

Driving the bridge gives you an impressive view of the water surrounding Öland. You dream of having a boat and visiting all the islands yourself.

I do not understand why this bridge is so highly regarded, since you just drive away in 100 km/h, and must watch the traffic more than the view. Away from that, the bridge is a special one, but as an attraction? No, thank you.

But very convenient to reach the island, and not having to take a ferry. Bikes cannot cross the bridge, and have to take, either the bus or the ferry.

Good way to reach island Öland without having to use a ferry. It opens opportunities for the island.

Well, it is a bridge. If someone has something to do on Öland, can cross the bridge. The bridge could be an engineering marvel but other than that it is not an architectural or artistic phenomenon. Definitely not an attraction.

I drive across this bridge every now and then and it's a beautiful bridge on the Baltic Sea. My Sambo and I can actually see it from our condo which is quite nice.

..we went over it twice, nice view up there, nowhere to stop thou. Wasn't easy for the Mrs to take a picture in a moving car over Färjestaden at the other side when we went over the first time, the second time we had learned our lesson so we just watched and took in the view over Kalmar.
