Hike to the world-record suspension bridge

In July 2017, the world’s longest suspension bridge for pedestrians opened: The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge above Randa. It is 494 m long and is 85 m above the abyss at its highest point. To reach it, a new hiking trail from the Randa train station was cut. The tour lasts 4 hours while overcoming 850 m of altitude twice.
