At its highest point, the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge hangs 279 feet above the ground. Fortunately, architects included a patented vibration system to prevent the bridge from swinging back and forth (but it still sounds pretty frightening in my humble opinion).
In addition to giving you bragging rights for days (along with some killer Instagram photos, I imagine), you'll be treated to incredible views of Matterhorn, Weisshorn, and the Bernese Alps as you cross the bridge.
The local tourism agency warned that the bridge is "for hikers with no fear of heights." If you are one of those hikers, the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge could be a serious time-saver for you. According to The Guardian it takes approximately 10 minutes to cross the bridge, compared to the four hours it would take to cross the terrain on foot.
A previous version of the bridge, built in 2010, was shut down due to safety concerns after it was damaged by rock falls. It took just two and a half months to construct the new and improved version.
