The 9 most intriguing bridge designs in the world – You won’t believe #2 & #3 are man made(With Pics)

8. Oresund Bridge, Sweden and Denmark


Half tunnel, half bridge, this shared Swedish/Danish structure serves both trains and motor vehicles across the Oresund straight. First opened in July 2000, is a true engineering marvel to behold; providing breathtaking views of both countries. From the Swedish side, the bridge extends over the water at a length of roughly 5 miles (8 km). Once it reaches the artificial island of Peberholm, Denmark can be reached via an underground tunnel that runs an additional 2 ½ miles (5km).
7. The Murinsel, Graz, Austria


This shell-shaped platform (Is it a bridge? Island? Boat?) that floats on the Mur River was commissioned to commemorate Graz’s being awarded the honor of 2003 European Capital of Culture. It can be accessed via footbridges on either side of the river. The Murinsel contains an amphitheater for holding events, a cafe for relaxing over a perfect cup of coffee and even a playground for children!
