The ‘Europabruecke’ suspension bridge (pictured) was inaugurated on July 29, 2017 after it was built to replace an older crossing that was damaged by falling rocks.

It is a record 1,620ft long and, at its highest point, 278ft high. Below it is the Grabengufer ravine, an area at the foot of the highest mountain in Switzerland – the Dom – which is 14,911 ft high. The bridge forms part of a hiking route between the towns of Zermatt and Grachen, and includes views of the legendary Matterhorn.
