Your Copenhagen vacation
Enjoy two countries in one fascinating vacation experience. The Øresund region refers to the land bordering the Øresund Sea, the body of water that lies between southern Sweden and eastern Denmark. Connecting the two countries is the landmark Øresund Bridge, it spans from the Danish capital, Copenhagen to Malmö, Sweden's third largest city. Opened in 2000 it allows travelers to explore two countries with ease.
Though relatively compact, the Øresund region manages to pack a multitude of diverse sights, experiences and attractions within its borders. Its unspoiled, idyllic countryside is perfect for unwinding with a fishing rod, golf club or book in hand, but you are also never far from the buzz of a major city with irresistible shops, seductive restaurants, stimulating culture and nightlife, and top class sports facilities. The Øresund region is also rich in history - a history that is kept alive in its world class museums as well as its ancient castles and manor houses, many of which are open to the public, some as hotels and guest houses.
