The Peak Walk by Tissot – Switzerland’s new Mountain Bridge

 

Looking for something different to do in Switzerland? Fancy a trip out of Zurich into the mountains? How about visiting Switzerland’s latest Mountain Bridge? It’s a spectacular attraction located in the Gstaad Glacier 3000 area. The brand new suspension bridge is called The Peak Walk by Tissot and hangs 3,000 meters high between the View Point and Scex Rouge in Gstaad. It’s 107metres long and 80cm wide and it cost 1.8 million Swiss francs to build.

In fact it’s not just Switzerland’s, but the world’s first hanging bridge connecting two peaks. As well as being a unique construction it also offers amazing views over the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc Massif, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

The Peak Walk by Tissot is very sturdily built and can withstand winds of up to 200km per hour. It can take up to 300 people on it at one time, but in the interests of visitor safety and comfort, numbers are limited to a maximum of 150.

So why not take a trip to somewhere different and new – and of course, don’t forget your camera!

The suspension bridge is open all year round (weather permitting), and is free of charge for visitors to the Glacier 3000.
