/ 2

Diving at New Lillebælt Bridge is mainly done around the bridge pillars. The western pillars are accessible from the shore. However, a boat dive is always recommended due to the swimming distance and the current. The pillars are beautifully overgrown and the gravel bottom is home to flatfish, crabs and lobsters. Bring your dive light for the best experience. The New Lillebælt Bridge connects Jutland, at the mainland of Denmark, with the island of Funen. The bridge was built between 1965 and 1970 and opened on October 21, 1970. The New Lillebælt Bridge remains ice-free in winter thanks to its heated carriageways.
