European route E47


European route E47

European route E47 is a highway going from Lübeck in Germany over Copenhagen, Denmark to Helsingborg, Sweden, which is also known under the name Vogelfluglinie and Sydmotorvejen. The road has motorway standard all the way except for 28 km (17.5 miles) in Germany, the part inside Helsingør (6 km/4 miles city street), and there are also two ferry connections.

The route has a ferry connection between Germany and Denmark. A bridge, the Fehmarn Belt bridge, is planned there.
Also, there is a ferry connection between Denmark (Helsingør) and Sweden (Helsingborg). There are no plans for a bridge or tunnel here (possiby a railway tunnel around year 2030, but no road connection). There is a bridge-tunnel combination between Denmark and Sweden further south, but still the ferry Helsingør-Helsingborg has a dense schedule.

Other road numbers

The Danish E-roads have no other national numbers (the national number is the same as the E-number, here 47, but only the E-sign is posted). Between Helsingborg and Eskilstrup on the island of Falster, 160 km, the E47 shares road with the E55. Between Køge and Copenhagen (29 km), also the E20 shares the same road. Danish roads 9 and 19 share roads with the E47 short parts.

In Germany the motorway has the national number Bundesautobahn 1. The part without motorway has the national number 207. This part is a kind of expressway with some of the mostly used road crossings built almost like motorway exits.

Termini

The northern terminus is at the ferry port in Helsingborg, where the European route E4 begins. The southern terminus is at European route E22 north of Lübeck.
