After 3 years delay and after 5 years under construction walk- and bike bridge “Inderhavnsbroen” between Nyhavn and Christianshavn was opened thursday the 7. july 2016 at 6 PM to the public.

Thousands of danes and visitors have “invaded” the new walk- and bike bridge the last 33 days to enjoy its function and the splendid view from the bridge to the beauty of Copenhagen Inner Harbour.

The 180 meter long “Inderhavnsbroen” is one of three new bike-and walk bridges, which connects Copenhagen City in Nyhavn with the quarters Christianshavn, Amager and Holmen on the opposite side of Copenhagen Inner Harbour.

The two other walk-and bike bridges are “Trangravsbroen” (between Christianshavn and Arsenaløen)  and “Proviantbroen” (between Arsenaløen and Frederiksholm) and were opened for the public in 2014.

The new 180 m long walk- and bike bridge  “Innerhavnsbroen” is constructed as a “slide bridge”: the two moving components each 24 m long glides to connect and disconnect from opposite of the foundations.  It creates an open space of 15 meter width for passing of sailing- and motor boats.

This “Slide Bridge” is a new, unique and creative construction, which has been used here in Copenhagen for the first time in Europe:

You can see the stationary constructions of the sliding bridge at left (to walk and run) and right (to bike) on photos.

The opening space for passing boats between the 2 stationary foundations on north- and south side of Copenhagen Inner Harbour is 15 meter width and the bridge is 5,40 meter above sea level (Frihøjde 5,40 m).

At left and right of above photo you see the one of two stationary foundations of Inderhavnsbroen: one on the Havnegade/Nyhavn side  and one on Christianshavn side ( Den Grønlandske Handels Plads) of Inner Copenhagen Harbour.
