Currently, travelling between these two countries involves a 45-minute ferry ride. But hold onto your hats — the Fehmarnbelt tunnel will slash that time dramatically! Imagine cruising through a futuristic underwater passage — a 10-minute car ride or a speedy 7-minute train journey will be your new reality.

This impressive project caters to all travellers. The Fehmarnbelt link will feature a two-lane motorway for car travel, alongside a double-track railway for train journeys. Whether you prefer the freedom of the open road or the comfort of train travel, the Fehmarnbelt tunnel has you covered.

The Fehmarnbelt project isn’t just about speed — it’s also about responsible development. This innovative tunnel aligns with the EU Green Deal’s focus on sustainable transportation solutions for the future.

Connecting the dots

The tunnel will begin its journey in Roedby, Denmark, and emerge in Puttgarden, Germany. This new undersea highway will revolutionise travel times, especially for popular routes like Copenhagen to Hamburg. Expect a travel time reduction of around two hours on this key route!

The tunnel is expected to be completed by 2029, with a projected cost of €4.8 billion (S$6.9 billion). The Danish government, which is funding the project, will implement a toll system to recoup expenses.
