Postcards #7: The Bridge, Denmark, and Germany


Hello and happy Sunday! Now we continue our brief vacation trip. These photos were taken at the end of July.






The Øresund Bridge, between Sweden and Denmark, is the longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe. It was the setting for the 2011 Swedish/Danish TV crime drama "The Bridge". (Filming the third series started in September 2014. - There has been also the homonymous American version.)






Denmark was sunny and pretty and cheerful:






We spent the following night in Northern Germany. Next day, we visited the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, in Hanover. "The Splendour of Garden Art" and they were grand indeed...


















... but soon we were on the road again. :)

















Next: Switzerland

  1. Hello Sara,
    The bridge I recognized because I see in July the two series of The Bridge. And I found it a shame that it ended because the characters of the persons in the series, I felt great! Fortunately, so there come a third serie.
    You drove a beautiful route to Switzerland! I'm looking forward to the next report.

    With love, Gerry

  3. Hyvää matkaa teille! Minun ensikosketukseni tanskalaisiin joskus nuorena oli kun he istuivat tyynesti oluella klo 9 aamulla. Ajattelin, että he ovat kyllä jotenkin vapaita kaavoista ja sitä mieltä vieläkin olen. Olen ihan koukussa tuohon Silta-sarjaan, se on niin hyvä! Teillä on ihana reissu, ajelkaa varovasti :)

  5. Todella kaunis puutarha. Noita maisemia ja Autobahneja mekin katselimme. Talon herra oli mielissään kun pääsi ajamaan vähän kovempaa. :-)

  8. So enjoying your trip with you as these are parts of Europe I will never see in person. There are certainly some wonderful formal gardens too.
    You've never said who the 'we' is, I assume your husband? Looking forward to Switzerland!
