Worlds longest pedestrian bridge opens in the Swiss Alps

If you’re afraid of heights, look away. The world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge has finally been completed in Switzerland, and it’s a whopping 1,620 feet long. 300 feet above an Alpine ravine, the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge forms part of the Europaweg — a two-day mountain trail which connects the towns of Grächen and Zermatt. The new installation saves hikers a long detour after a previous bridge was damaged by falling rocks.
