Up in the sky before you fly home The last stop before the congress farewell dinner Saturday night is a unique experience, namely bridgewalking. You can find it in only four places in the world, in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia, in Auckland, New Zealand, and be - tween the island of Funen, where Hans Christian Andersen was born, and the Jutland peninsula. At 60 metres above sea level your guide will provide information on the bridge and the surroundings, while you feel the wind in your hair – and maybe a rush in your stomach, while the trains cross the bridge far below. You will have incredible views of the Little Belt, Funen, and Jut - land. You must be able to com - plete a walk of over just over two kilometres and not suffer from vertigo to participate.
