Fehmarn Belt


The Danish island of Lolland has attracted in the last two years many families of internationals that work on the Fehmarn Belt. This has led to massive efforts to make the island more welcoming to internationals (f.ex. an international school in English). 

  • Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link is an 18 kilometres immersed tunnel that is currently being constructed between the island of Lolland and the German island of Fehmarn, in the Baltic Sea. Once finished in 2029, it will become the world’s largest road and rail tunnel. 
  • In June 2015, €589m of EU funding was awarded to Denmark by the European Commission under its Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) scheme, which represents up to 10% of the total investment value. 
  • The Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link and its double-tracks will shorten the rail journey from Hamburg to Copenhagen from four hours and 58 minutes to three hours and 15 minutes.
