Instöbron or Instöbridge is a bridge connecting Vrångholmen and Instön near Marstrand in Kungälv Kommun, north of Göteborg, Sweden.
Instön is an island near Marstrand in Bohuslän. The name refers to that Instön is the innermost of the major Marstrand Islands. The area is 3.6 square kilometers. The settlement on the island was burned during the war in 1658 by the Danes.
Instön is today an area with mainly holiday home construction, but some conversion to permanent housing has taken place. A municipal water pipeline is located past south of Instön on the way out to Koön and Marstrand. The southern part of Instön is connected to this line.
Between Koön and Instön, in Mittsund, during the herring periods, there were herring salts and cranberries. Now only certain house grounds remain as memories from this important economic greatness for Sweden. At most, over 600 people learn to have been active in the herring salt industry.
The Instö bridge was built in 1991 and connects the two islands of Vrångholmen and Instön. The bridge then replaced the ferry and gave the Marstrand residents a permanent land connection. The bridge is 510m long built in six spans of different lengths. The bridge is built in reinforced concrete and is of the type console-built box beam bridge.
