The infinite bridge

The infinite bridge

A circular bridge into the sea, near Tangkrogen.

The bridge is part of the art project "Sculpture by the Sea" from 2015. It is created by the architects Niels Povlsgaard and Johan Gjødes.

People were so happy about the bridge that it became a permanent installation and can be used from May to October.

A nice place with a good beach.

A little further out there is the animal garden with fallow deer and cica deer that are so tame that they can be hand fed and folded. Remember to bring
carrots and apples.
