Hostalde pedestrian suspension bridge

With a length of 153 metres, the Hostalde pedestrian suspension bridge in Frutigen is one of the longest bridges of its kind in Europe.

The bridge hovers 38 metres above the “Engstlige” mountain stream and the meadow landscape that surrounds it. Not for those who are afraid of heights!
