- Switzerland (Randa)
The 494-m (1,620-ft 8.8-in) Charles Kuonen Bridge is the world's longest hanging bridge for pedestrians. It is just 65 cm wide and stretches 85 m (278 ft 10.4 in) above the Grabengufer ravine, near Randa in Switzerland. Officially opened on 29 July 2017, the steel bridge, whose cables weigh 8 tonnes (17,636.98 lb), forms part of the Europaweg, a two-day hiking route between Zermatt and Grächen in southern Switzerland, with views of the Matterhorn mountain. The bridge, built by Swissrope / Lauber Seilbahnen AG, Frutigen, is the first footbridge of this type to surpass the main span of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, USA.
The bridge replaced the Europabrücke, damaged by rock falls just two months after its inauguration in July 2010.
