Geneva - This bridge is not for the acrophobic.
Switzerland has inaugurated the world's longest suspension foot bridge along a trail toward the famed Matterhorn that features majestic Alpine views.
World's longest suspension bridge
On 26 July 2017 - A Swiss tourism official said the 494 meter bridge can cut hiking time on the Europaweg trail by at least 3 hours between the southwestern towns of Graechen and Zermatt.
Before the opening on 29 July 2017 - Alpine explorers had to descend into the town of Randa and scale another ascent since a shorter foot bridge was closed in 2010 due to unstable terrain.
Only 65 centimeters wide, the bridge soars as high as 85 meters above the ground, traversing over the deepest-cut valley in Switzerland.
Swiss media said the structure surpasses Germany's 459 meter 'Titan-RT' as the world's longest suspension bridge.
The towering 'Europabruecke' bridge in Switzerland - soaring in the skies at 494 meters above the ground.
The skyline - view must be breathtaking as you walk over the new suspension bridge in Switzerland.
This is the renowned suspension bridge in Germany known as 'Titan- RT' at a height of 459 meters. There is a 35 meter difference in the two bridges.
