World Amazing Stuff: Highest suspension bridge in Europe

Highest suspension bridge in Europe

The Europe’s highest suspension bridge “Mount Titlis” has opened to the public at Engelberg, Switzerland. The highest suspension bridge is 100m and it was built to mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of a cable car in the town of Engelberg-Gerschnialp in January 1913.

The highest suspension bridge Mount Titlis in central Switzerland is around 3,000m above sea level, 91m long and just 1m wide.

The bridge offers views that extend as far as 500m down "into the abyss of the south wall" on days with good visibility. Getting to the bridge itself is a journey and passes through an underground tunnel. The bridge took four months to build and cost 1.5 million Swiss francs (US$1.6 million).
