The “Europabruecke” – World’s Longest Pedestrian Suspension Bridge

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.
