World's Longest Pedestrian Suspension Bridge is Open

The world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge across an Alpine ravine has been opened in southern Switzerland.

The bridge can carry hikers 1,620 feet across the ravine, with a height of up to 300 feet.

The bridge forms a part of the Europaweg, a two-day mountain trail connecting the towns of Grächen and Zermatt.

The bridge also offers views of the 14,783-foot Weisshorn — a mountain slightly taller than the more famous nearby Matterhorn.

The new bridge is also meant to replace an older bridge that was hit by falling rocks and is named after its main sponsor, a co-owner of a Swiss winery Charles Kuonen.
