About Europaweg

The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge opened on July 29th, 2017. It is the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world measuring 494 meters long and located between Grächen and Zermatt along the Europaweg. We are very proud to have helped support bridge construction as a part of trail maintenance in the area. Until this bridge was completed, hikers had to take a long detour to get around the valley because the former bridge was closed due to damage from falling rocks. The new bridge has been highly anticipated by prospective hikers of the Europaweg. The bridge will increase access to the Europaweg by making it easier to hike and increasing safety. And because it is the world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge, it is also attracting tourists to the area helping to revitalize the local economy.
