Suspension bridge Highline 179: heart pounding at 114 m
The pedestrian suspension bridge Highline 179 swings over the valley. The Fernpassstraße B 179 runs under the bridge construction. The numbering of which was also the inspiration for the naming of the attraction. At the time it opened, Highline 179 was one of the longest pedestrian suspension bridges in the world. The 1.20 m wide footbridge made of the grating is 406 m long. Many visitors get a queasy feeling after the first few meters when they look down. At a height of 114 m, the bridge construction hovers over the valley. When the humidity is high, wafts of fog form, enveloping the suspension bridge and creating a mysterious atmosphere.
