WORLDKINGS - Worldkings News - Europe – Charles Kuonen bridge: The world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge

31-12-2019

(Worldkings.org) Charles Kuonen bridge is the world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge.

A pedestrian suspension bridge longer than that above Randa is nowhere to be found. At almost 500 metres long, walkers and hikers can cross over the valley of the Zermatt - Matterhorn destination on a walkway.

The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge completes the Europaweg from Grächen to Zermatt. Many people consider this to be the most beautiful two-day hike in the Alps. If one covers the entire trail, one enjoys views of the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and the Bernese Alps. The suspension bridge can also be reached by foot from Randa.

The longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world is almost 500 m long and traverses the Grabengufer of the Lärchberg on the Höüschbiel and is 85 m above the valley at its highest point. Access is free and requires a certain lack of fear, because walkers cross on a walkway with grating one can see through.

The facts in brief:

Bridge length: 494 m

Highest point: 85 m

Width: 65 cm
