Switzerland, on Sunday, unveiled 'Europabruecke bridge' the world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge, that is giving the hikers a chill for their zeal.

Built 28 stories above the ground, the bridge is 1,620 feet long. The Swiss authorities constructed the bridge over the Grabengufer ravine within a mere 10 weeks time.


Replacing the older bridge, that was damaged due to rocks falls, the new bridge has made into the news breaking record as the longest pedestrian suspension bridge.

It is also impossibly narrow with just a width of 25.6 inches.

A steel structure connects the bridge between two sections of Grächen and Zermatt, a two-day hike. Offering the view of some of the most beautiful natural beauty, this bridge also completes a the Europaweg trail, a high-altitude hiking route.

The tourist authorities also warn that the bridge is only for “hikers with no fear of heights.”

Switzerland also has 'Peak Walk by Tissot', the world's first pedestrian suspension bridge in Bernese Oberland. It's a 351 feet bridge that connects two mountain peaks opened on Glacier 3000.
