L'Øresund en Danois ou Öresund en suèdois est le détroit qui sépare le Danemark et la Suède, plus précisément l'île de Sjaelland et la Scanie.

L'Oresund relie la mer Baltique, au détroit de Kattegat en direction de la mer du Nord. Faisant environ 8km de long et 3 à 4 km de large. Les villes de Copenhague, Elseneur (Helsingor) au Danemark, Malmö et Helsingborg en Suède sont situées sur son rivage.

L'Oresund est peu profond, très fréquenté, il fut donc le théâtre de nombreux naufrages.

Au sud, le pont reliant Malmö à Copenhague se dresse. Un chenal est à respecter pour passer en dessous mais également au large du champ d'éoliennes implanté plus au sud.
