The Quay Bridge (Bryggebroen) is the newest bridge in Copenhagen inner harbor, and is a 190 metres combined pedestrian and bicyclist bridge directed east-west. The bridge is joined to Kalvebod Brygge (west) and Islands Brygge (east) and thus connects Vesterbro on Zealand and Amager.

The bridge has become a popular place for attaching love padlocks. The bridge, which opened to public on 14. September 2006, is 5.5 metres wide, divided by a pedestrian path and cycling path and constructed as a swing bridge, to allow larger sailing vessels to pass. The name of the bridge was determined, after a vote in the Danish newspaper Politiken, where more than 200 suggestions were submitted. The name Bryggebroen was elected, because it connects the two quays (brygger) Islands Brygge and Kalvebod Brygge.

When the bridge was opened, the area surrounding it was still a construction site, which created a need for a construction of a temporary wooden bridge on the west-side. Also it was necessary to create a temporary path, south of the shopping mall Fisketorvet. Both construction resulting in additional expenses of approx. DKK 8 mio. (approx. EUR 1 mio.).
