3 Impressive Suspension Bridges in Switzerland That Will Leave You Speechless
Switzerland is home to many interesting phenomena. One of those is its impressive number of suspension bridges. Some of these are bound to leave you speechless – but would you be happy to walk across them?
We’ve chosen 3 which we think are particularly noteworhty. Here’s our list:
1. Glacier 3000 and the Peak Walk by Tissot
The only bridge to connect two mountain peaks
The Glacier 3000 Peak Walk By Tissot is the only bridge to connect two mountain peaks and as the name implies its located at 3000m altitude. If you walk across it in Winter you will find it covered in snow. However, in Summer when the snow has melted you can see through the the metal bridge to the depths below – which I personally find a little scarier! However, once you get to the other side of the bridge there is a viewing area and the panoramic vista is simply awesome.

2. Titlis Cliff Walk in Engelberg
The highest suspension bridge in Europe
At 3,041 metres above sea level and 500 metres off the ground, the TITLIS Cliff Walk holds the record for being the highest suspension bridge in Europe. The TITLIS Cliff Walk is a truly spectacular suspension bridge offering stunning views from all sides. There’s also an underground tunnel through a glacier cave which takes you to the to the viewing platform at the south wall window. The TITLIS Cliff Walk is only one metre wide and is over 100 metres in length.
