Not for the faint hearted, this suspension bridge in Switzerland makes for a stunning (if slightly terrifying) way to walk across the Swiss Alps.

At a length of 494 meters, and measuring just 65cm wide, the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge just opened in the Swiss Alps. Standing at 86m above ground, it runs over a valley between Grächen and Zermatt and thanks to its location, offers truly breathtaking views over mountains such as the iconic Matterhorn.

The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge can be found along the Europaweg foot trail – a stunning hiking route in the Alps – and takes 10 whole minutes to cross. That may seem like a pretty long time to spend on a bridge, but when you take into account the fact that hikers previously had to walk for 4 hours to reach the same destination, it seems like mere seconds.
