Europe's Scariest and Highest Suspension Bridge Opens

Nicola Chapman by
Categories: Europe Tags: Titlis Bridge Walk, Mount Titlis
This week in the Alps skiers and holiday goers were celebrating more than the snowy weather as Europe’s highest suspension bridge opened, teetering at a dizzying 3,000 metres above sea level!

A handful of lucky daredevils got to preview the Titlis Bridge Walk last week but it opens to the public this weekend so visitors to the region can enjoy the jaw-dropping views.

The suspension bridge conditions are said to be less than ideal - being so 3,000 metres high up in the mountains causes a few problems - and high winds are the biggest one. Hopefully all of this adds to the adventure and fun though because, once on the bridge, it will offer visitors to the Swiss Alps views that stretch 500 metres down into the valleys and a breathtaking view of the south face of Mount Titlis.                                                            To reach the viewing platform guests will have to first take a cable car, then walk through a 140 metre-long tunnel which will eventually bring them to the viewing platform and suspension bridge, which itself is only one metre wide.

The bridge is built in the ski resort of Titlis Engelberg and was built to mark the 100th anniversary of the Engelberg-Gerschnialp cable car. Titlis Rotair was in charge of building this mammoth bridge that ended up costing an estimated CHF 1.3 million! The hope is that the bridge will become a significant addition to the resort's many attractions, include a glacier park, snowtubing, glacier trail, glacier cave, photo shop and a great selection of restaurants and cafes.

One thing is sure, however -  next time you take a trip to Engelberg, this amazing bridge should not be missed!
