Oresund Bridge

The Copenhagen-Oslo route

Should you choose to drive one of the roads to or from Copenhagen through Sweden, the Swedish coast can tempt with many pearls along the coast and the E6.

If you do not choose the road over the Øresund Bridge from Copenhagen, it is a great experience to drive the beach road out of the city north and take the ferry from Helsingør to Helsingborg. Then you can at the same time take the opportunity to visit the wonderful Museum of Navigation in Helsingør. In Helsingør is also Kronborg Castle where Shakespeare's Hamlet takes place. The crossing between Helsingør and Helsingborg takes about 20 minutes.

Gothenburg harbor

Towards Gothenburg

Just north of Helsingborg you will find Mølle which is an old cozy seaside resort. From here it is not far to Båstad, known for the Swedish Open in tennis. Further north in Halland you will find Halmstad, Falkenberg and Varberg which are nice cities with beautiful beaches.

Gothenburg is a popular destination for us Norwegians. Liseberg, Avenyen and a trip with the Paddan boats are activities that can certainly fit both big and small. Those who enjoy shopping will also have a wonderful experience in Gothenburg.

The road to Oslo

North of Gothenburg you will come to Bohuslän with fantastic rock and salt baths. Take a detour to Marstrand where the royals have vacationed through the ages, and where Carlsten's fortress from the 17th century rows over the island.

A little further north in Bohuslän you can look at rock carvings from the Bronze Age in Tanum. Strømstad may not need any further presentation, but from here there is also a ferry to the fantastic Koster Islands. From Strømstad the road is short to Svinesund with good shopping opportunities and the border with Norway.
