World's longest pedestrian suspension bridge traverses a Swiss valley
Brave hikers in the Swiss Alps can now walk almost half a kilometre across this thin metal suspension bridge to reach trails on either side of a huge valley.
The Charles Kuonen Hängebrücke, also known as the Europe Bridge, gently swoops across Switzerland’s deepest valley, which stretches between the popular ski resorts of Zermatt and Grächen. It measures 494 metres long, making it the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world, and hangs 84 metres above the valley floor. The metal deck is just 64 centimetres wide.
