Mount Titlis and Europe’s Highest Suspension Bridge

Fancy going up into the mountains and seeing some fantastic views? One of the best places in Switzerland to feast your eyes on perfect snow-capped alpine scenery must surely be the area around Mount Titlis. The highest suspension bridge in Switzerland was opened in January 2013 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Engelberg-Gerschnialp cable car.

It is in fact not just Switzerland’s, but Europe’s highest suspension bridge – and it’s even known as the “scariest bridge in the world”. Constructed without support in the middle you can really “feel the suspension” as you walk across it. It is situated 3,000m (10,000 ft) above sea level is 91m (300 ft) long , and has a width of only 1m (3ft). There is high netting on either side so it is safe – though of course it may feel a little wobbly!  Maybe not designed for the faint-hearted – but if you’re looking for impressive mountain scenery and fabulous Swiss views this is the place to go.

Situated in Central Switzerland it’s been recommended to us as a great day out or an ideal location for a weekend out of Zurich. If you do visit let us know what you thought and don’t forget your camera! For more information please see here.
