Built 28 stories above the ground, the bridge is 1,620 feet long.
Below it is the Grabengufer ravine, an area at the foot of Switzerland's highest mountain, the 4,545m-high Dom.
The bridge replaces an older bridge that was destroyed by falling rocks.Читайте также: Ryan Reynolds shares first image of Domino from Deadpool 2
The suspension bridge is of a length of 1621 feet and rising as high as 279 feet has broken all the record - which makes it the longest in the world.
If you're planning on walking arm-in-arm with a partner, think again: The bridge only measures 25.6 inches wide - just enough for one person, single file.
The bridge is constructed with steel, connecting Zermatt with nearby Grächen, which is also a popular two-day hike in Switzerland. The thrill of traversing the precipice is indescribable. It cut the commute time between two sides of the valley from four hours to 10 minutes. With a maximum height of 85 metres above the valley, the bridge is only "for hikers with no fear of heights".
Together, they form a well-known path called Europaweg for hiking lovers, offering panoramic views of the famous Matterhorn, Weisshorn and Bernese Alps.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
