The Europabruecke suspension bridge was inaugurated on the day 29 july 2017 after it was built to replace an older crossing that was damaged by falling rocks. It is a record 1,620ft long and, at its highest point, 278ft high. Below it is the Grabengufer ravine, an area at the foot of the highest mountain in Switzerland - the Dom - which is 14,911 ft high. The bridge forms part of a hiking route between the towns of Zermatt and Grachen, and includes views of the legendary Matterhorn.
The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge completes the Europaweg from Grächen to Zermatt. Many people consider this to be the most beautiful two-day hike in the Alps. If one covers the entire trail, one enjoys views of the Matterhorn, Weisshorn and the Bernese Alps. The suspension bridge can also be reached by foot from Randa.
