Faster train links will bind Europe closer together
The Fehmarnbelt link will shave two hours off the train journey between Copenhagen and Hamburg.
It currently takes four and a half hours by train from Hamburg to Copenhagen and ten hours by train between Stockholm and Hamburg. When the Fehmarnbelt tunnel and the upgrading of the rail infrastructure on both sides of the link are complete, the journey time will be cut by two hours. There will also be far more frequent departures on the route.
