Storebaelt - Largest Suspension Bridge in Europe


The highlight of this Day at Sea was passing under the Storbaelt (Great Belt) Bridge, the largest suspension bridge in Europe. This road and rail link spans an 11 mile stretch of water to connect Copenhagen (Sjaelland Island) with the rest of Denmark (the car toll is €29 one-way). It has the 2nd longest span in the world at 1624 metres. It was remarkable to feel that we were just squeaking under the bridge (the Star Princess is very tall).
