Day 7: Copenhagen - Groningen
Rodbyhavn Travel Blog› entry 12 of 13 › view all entries
After a quick and rather unappealing breakfast (the breakfast was served in the pub attached to the hotel, which seems to be the only pub in Copenhagen where smoking is still allowed) we set out on the road again, for the long drive back to Holland.
To my surprise the Øresund bridge we passed into Denmark yesterday isn't the longest bridge/tunnel combination in the world. I always thought it was, actually. But further research taught me that the longest bridge and tunnel combination in the world is in fact in Denmark, however, it is the Storebaeltsforbindelsen spanning 18 kilometres connecting the islands of Funen and Zealand. Of course, now that we knew, we had to go there, right? Unfortunately the Tom Tom Satnav told us this would add another 180 kilometres to our trip back home, and since the Satnav had proven to be more than trustworthy this trip, we opted for the recommended ferry crossing to Puttgarden, Germany, instead.
Being back in Germany meant two things: 1) being able to speed again, and making some proper progress and 2) traffic jams making sure we didn't make any progress at all! :(
