The world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge has opened in Switzerland, inviting walkers to brave a narrow path running 86 metres above the ground at its highest point. The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge, in the Swiss Alps, near the village of Randa, is a record-breaking 494 metres long and connects Grächen and Zermatt on the Europaweg foot trail. The bridge, which is a steel construction, runs between 1,600m and 2,200m above sea level, with views of the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and the Bernese Alps in the distance. It replaces a previous bridge that had been damaged by rock falls. It breaks a record previously set by a glass-bottomed suspension bridge completed last year in China. The 430 metre-long bridge traversed the vast Zhangjiajie Canyon in Hunan province, with a 300m drop beneath it.
