Switzerland has opened the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge. The bridge measures in at 1,620 feet long, which is about one-third of a mile. It is located over the Grabengufer ravine near Zermatt and is suspended 278 feet high.
The bridge was built in only ten weeks with the intention of replacing another bridge that was damaged by falling rocks. In measures in at 25.6 inches wide which means that there is only room to walk in a single file line across the ravine.
The bridge has not yet gotten acknowledgment from the Guinness World Records. They still have the world’s longest bridge on file as Japan‘s Kokonoe Yume Bridge. That bridge measures 1,279 feet across.
The tourist authority in Switzerland explains that the bridge is “for hikers with no fear of heights.”
