Geocache Description:


Portræt af Dronning Alexandrines Bro

Danmarks smukkeste bro er den blevet kaldt, Dronning Alexandrines Bro, der leder trafikken over Ulvsund mellem Sjælland og Møn. Broen er en klassisk buebro, med buer både over og under vejbanen, og det er igen bro-professoren Anker Engelund, der har tegnet broen.

Broen hører da også til en af Danmarks mest markante broer, der fremstår med en helt særlig charme. Den store bue over gennemsejlingsfaget på midten er 127,5 meter bred, og hele broen fra Sjælland til Møn er 746 meter lang.

Ønsket om en bro mellem Sjælland og Møn tog fart i begyndelsen af 30'erne, hvor lokale på Møn besluttede sig for at arbejde for en fast forbindelse. I 1938 gav det daværende ministerium for offentlige arbejder sit blå stempel til projektet, og året efter gik arbejdet i gang. Og på trods af tyskernes besættelse af Danmark i 1940, skred arbejdet også planmæssigt frem under krigen.

Navnet Dronning Alexandrines Bro blev opkaldt af Dronning Alexandrine, som var gift med Kong Christian X. De deltog ved indvielsen af broen den 30. maj 1943. Broen kaldes dog også for Ulvsundbroen af de lokale, - eller blot Mønbroen.


Portrait of Dronning Alexandrines Bro

Moenbroen or as its official name is, Dronning Alexandrines Bro, has been called the most beautiful bridge in Denmark, and is connecting the traffic between Zealand and Moen. The bridge which carry the traffic more than 127 mtrs. above the sound Ulvsund, is build as a classical arched bridge, with arches both above and below the roadway, and again it is the bridge-professor Anker Engelund, who designed the bridge.

The bridge above Ulvsund belongs to the group of the most characteristic bridges in Denmark, which due to the numerous arches stands a special charm. The width of the arch above the main span is 127,5 meters, and the whole bridge between Zealand and Moen is 746 meters long.

The thoughts about a bridge between Zealand and Moen began in the early thirties, where the local inhabitants on Moen decided to go for a bridge. In 1938 the ministry at that time gave their recognition to the project, and the work began the year after. Despite the occupation of Denmark by the Germans in 1940, the work progressed according to the schedule, and in the spring of 1943 the bridge was finished.

The name Dronning Alexandrines Bro is due to the fact that Dronning Alexandrine, who was married to The King Christian X, participated in the opening of the bridge May 30th. 1943.
The bridge is also called Ulvsundbroen by the locals, - or just Moenbroen.
