Vilsund Bridge

In the middle of the Limfjord, Mors (or Morsø) is another island, like Fur, known for its diatomite deposits. On Mors's western side, the impressive Vilsund Bridge (Vilsundbroen) is one of the fjord's most recognizable manmade landmarks, thanks to its five arches. Connecting the island to Thy, a district on North Jutlandic Island, the 382-meter-long (1,250-foot-long) bascule bridge was designed by Anker Engelund and completed in 1939. While not a household name everywhere, Engelund designed a number of noteworthy bridges in Denmark and reshaped engineering instruction in the country's universities.
