We Dare You to Walk on the World’s Longest Pedestrian Bridge in Switzerland!

Striking with its beauty and undulating landscape, the Swiss Alps is a gorgeous destination in the world. While there are so many different ways to soak in the pristine beauty of Switzerland, the newly opened Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge is the best way to do it.

Spanning across a length of 494 meters, at a height of 279 ft from the ground, Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge is now the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world.

The bridge comes in as a replacement to the defunct Europabrücke that was damaged by a rock slide. Inaugurated on the 29th of July, Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge hangs high in the air offering unparalleled views of Matterhorn, Bernese Alps, and Weisshorn.

Interestingly, Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge is not for everyone. Incredibly narrow, the bridge can fit in only one person at a time! Added to it, the authorities have also warned that the bridge is not for the faint-hearted and the jaw dropping experience is recommended only for ‘hikers with no fear of heights’.

If you are still intrigued by the bridge, then bravo my friend you are halfway there. Just pack your bags and be all set to go on the walk of your life, exploring Switzerland trip packages that promise unforgettable adventures.

Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge connects Zermatt with Grächen and is yet to be recognized by Guinness world records.
