Suspension bridge “highline179″

The second longest swing pedestrian bridge of the world belongs to the famous Ehrenberg Castle Ensemble.

East of Reutte, the Ehrenberg Castle Ensemble with its four fortifications and a museum is located. The Ehrenberg Castle Ruin and the Fort Claudia were connected some years ago with a swing pedestrian bridge in Tibetan style, which astonishes all visitors.

Also the beginning of the works was really special: A drone flew a silk thread from one hillside to the other, and laid the foundation of the "highline179". It is named after the state road 179, which runs under the bridge. The suspension bridge is 406 metres long, 1.20 metres broad, 114.60 metres aboveground, and offers pure thrills. It combines 120 floor elements: In addition to its own 70 tons of weight, it can carry up to 500 persons at a time - and this also in strong winds.

The bridge is accessible within a 20-minute hike on a forest path, or with the new Ehrenberg Liner, an inclined elevator for barrier-free access. From 2014 until 2017, the "highline179" was the longest suspension bridge for pedestrians of the world and therefore also listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Then in summer 2017, the 494 m long Europe Bridge in Zermatt was opened.
