Svendborgsund Bridge ( German  Svendborgsund Bridge ) is a bridge at the town of Svendborg in the south of the Danish island of Fyn (dt. Funen ), which over the Svendborgsund to place Vindeby on the small island Tåsinge leads. The bridge, completed in 1966, was the last link connecting Fyn to the island of Langeland via Siøsundbroen (1960) and Langelandsbroen (1962) . The Primærrute 9 trunk road runs over the two-lane road bridge and is used by 15,700 vehicles every day (as of 2009).

The girder bridge, around 1220 meters long and 14 meters wide, rests on 25 reinforced concrete pillars. Eleven of them are in the water, making the bridge twice as long as the sound.


The first plans to build a bridge over Svendborgsund were submitted in 1938 by Denmark's bridge builder Anker Engelund . His design, which provided for a 950 meter long arched bridge , could not initially be realized due to the outbreak of the Second World War . But when the alternative between a bridge and a tunnel solution was discussed in the early 1960s, his plans were taken up again after his death in 1961 and continued by the engineers J. Hannemann and Poul Møller Nielsen. The decision was made in favor of a girder bridge, as it would fit more harmoniously into the landscape with its slender pillars. After three years of construction, the building was finally inaugurated on November 18, 1966 by the then Crown Princess and today's Danish Queen Margrethe II .
