The world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge has opened in southern Switzerland, stretching 1620 feet as part of a trail in the Alps, NBC News reported.
Known as the "Europabruecke", the bridge hangs more than 275 feet above the Grabengufer ravine and spans almost one-third of a mile. The bridge, which cost 750,000 Swiss Francs (about $775,594), replaces an older suspension bridge that closed in 2010 due to falling rocks.
The highest point of the bridge stands at nearly 300 feet above ground.
At 494m long, the new Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge spans a valley on the two-day Europaweg walking trail in the canton of Valais.
