Højbro (lit. "High Bridge") is a bridge in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It connects the small island Slotsholmen with its Christiansborg Palace to the rest of the city centre at the square Højbro Plads which is named after it. The current bridge at the site is from 1878 and was designed by Vilhelm Dahlerup.

There has been a bridge at the site since the middle ages. The current bridge was built in 1878 to a design by Vilhelm Dahlerup, who also renewed Holmens Bro and Børsbroen, two other Slotsholmen bridges, which were later dismantled and replaced by other bridges. It was expanded to its current width in the 1960s.
The bridge is made of steel and rests on a granite plinth.
