World's longest suspension footbridge opens in Switzerland spanning 494m across valley

This new possibility comes from the recently opened Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge, which, CNN reports, is now the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world. Rising as high as 279 ft and spanning 1621 ft, the new bridge has been constructed along the valley between the towns of Zermatt and Grachen.

Pedestrian suspension bridges are now in a bit of an arms race-the Europabrücke grabbed the "longest" title from Germany's Titan-RT bridge, which only opened this past May. It cut the commute time between two sides of the valley from four hours to 10 minutes. The official inauguration of the bridge happened in Randa, Switzerland on July 29. "How often do you get the chance to cross a real-world record suspension bridge?" he said. It offers hikers views of the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and Bernese Alps. "The thrill experienced high over the precipice is indescribable".
