Since 1963 Fehmarn has been connected to the
German mainland by a suspension bridge, the Fehmarn
Sound Bridge. It is 963,40 m long and 69 m high.
On the island's opposite side there is the Fehmarn
Belt, a strait separating Fehmarn from Lolland.
The Fehmarn Belt can be crossed by ferries travelling
between the seaports of Puttgarden, Germany and
Rødbyhavn, Denmark. The crossing takes
about 45 minutes. See also: the project of the
Fehmarn Belt bridge.
