Are you brave enough to walk the world's longest suspension pedestrian bridge? Zermatt, the Swiss tourist information center, announced that the longest suspension bridge in the world, the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge, is now open to hikers, adrenaline junkies and anyone looking for a great view of the Swiss Alps.
Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge was built by SWISSROPE in just ten weeks, 494 meter long bridge and at the highest point rises from the ground 85 meters. The bridge connects two parts of the two-day mountain tour, namely Grächen and Zermatt.
The new bridge replaced the old one that had been damaged by falling rocks. It was named after psychologist Charles Kuonen, which, among other things, is also the main sponsor of the bridge. It's a bridge half a meter wide and definitely not for those who are afraid of heights.
