The longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge in the Swiss Alps at 170m long and height of 100m. It was originally built in 2004 as the glacier has melted away & no longer could hikers cross over to the mountain hut. It's been replaced in 2009. You...More

You don't have to print that, just save the tickets in pdf to your phone. There is a QR code and they'll scan that.
