The Best European Suspension Bridges
Running over a steep canyon, gently swaying in the wind and impressive architecturally at first glance: this is how typical, spectacular suspension bridges for pedestrians look. The path over them? Not possible for people with a fear of heights! But the reward for those who dare? Adrenaline rushes and happiness on the other side – because that’s how you overcame the challenge!
There are many suspension bridges that are free to explore on foot, perhaps even guiding you through a hiking area and almost forcing you to take the shortcut across a deep gorge. There are others that require a fee for you to enter, but it will pay for itself in no time. Be it in the beautiful south in Portugal, straight out the front door in Germany, or high in the north in Norway: Here we show you ten different suspension bridges in Europe that are great for thrills and adventures!
Located in the Black Forest, the WildLine suspension bridge is definitely not to be hidden from other specimens, being 380 meters long. In addition, it has a special feature: it is built arching upwards, making it unique in its kind in Europe. The bridge can carry a total of up to 600 people and itself weighs 141 tons.
Its connection to the Bad Wildbad Fairy Tale Trail makes sure that many vacationers and especially families with children will inevitably come across the WildLine. However, it is questionable whether they will dare to cross it.
With heights of 60 meters in places, this suspension bridge is only suitable for those who don’t mind deep chasms. And the views? They reach much further into the depths, in good weather even about 300 meters down into the Enz valley. Since a visit to the bridge costs money, you should consider beforehand whether this challenge suits you.
