Knippelsbro (English: Knippel Bridge) is a bascule bridge across the Inner Harbour of Copenhagen, Denmark, connecting Børsgade (Stock Exchange Street) on Zealand-side Slotsholmen to Torvegade (Market Street) on Christianshavn. It is one of only two bridges to carry motor vehicles across the harbour in central Copenhagen, the other being Langebro.

The bridge, the fifth on the site, is 115 m long. It was inaugurated in 1937.

The first bridge between Copenhagen and Christianshavn was constructed in 1618-20 by Christian IV. Even though it was constructed in wood, it was not renewed until 1816. The first iron bridge on the site was constructed in 1868-69.The iron bridge was renewed in 1908 and in 1934 replaced by an intermistic bridge. The current bridge was constructed in 1937 and is designed by architect Kaj Gottlob and was listed in 2007.
