The FBBC is a tri-national organisation that seeks to promote closer links between the Hamburg/Lübeck and Copenhagen/Malmö economic areas. With this in mind, the FBBC has produced the following paper in order to provide information on the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel project and the economic areas concerned.
WHAT IS THE FEHMARNBELT REGION?
The Fehmarnbelt Region includes parts of northern Germany, the eastern part of Denmark and southern Sweden. To be more precise, these are the German regions of Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Western Mecklenburg-West Pomerania (including its capital Schwerin and the rural districts of Nordwestmecklenburg and Ludwigslust-Parchim), the Zealand group of islands in Denmark (including Copenhagen) and the Swedish region of Scania. This definition of the region encompasses the largest possible area within the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel’s direct sphere of influence.
