WILL YOU WALK IT?
Switzerland has opened the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, inviting walkers to brave a narrow path up to 86m above the ground.
The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge is a record-breaking 494 metres long and connects Grachen and Zermatt on the Europaweg foot trail. The steel construction runs between 1,600m and 2,200m above sea level, with views – if you can look at them – of the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and the Bernese Alps in the distance. The previous bridge had been damaged by rock falls.
