It’s a Long Way Down! World’s First Peak-to-Peak Suspension Bridge Opens

Don’t look down!

The world’s first peak-to-peak suspension bridge is open for business (and panic attacks) in the Swiss Alps.

Peak Walk at Glacier 3000 is 351 feet long and 9,800 feet above sea level. Visitors who dare cross this amazing footbridge — which connects Glacier 3000 with Scex Rouge — must navigate a span that’s only 31 inches wide.

But the upside: killer views of the Swiss Alps.

The project didn’t take long at all. Construction began in September. The bridge will be open for business year `round.

Still, Peak Walk is only Europe’s second-highest suspension bridge. Titlis Cliff Walk, also in the Swiss Alps, tops out at 10,000 feet above sea level.
