The 200-krone banknote, will be issued 19 October 2010, depicts Knippelsbro and Langstrup Belt Plate. The pictures shown below are not the final printed banknotes.
Knippelsbro (Knippels Bridge) links Slotsholmen to Christianshavn in Copenhagen. The first bridge on this site was built from 1618 to 1620 by King Christian IV, whereas the present Knippelsbro, the fifth in the series, dates back to 1937. When ships need to pass under the 115-metre-long bridge, the bascule leaves of the bridge are raised, providing a horizontal clearance of 35 metres.
