Titlis Cliff Walk, Switzerland
Strung between imposing rock faces in the spectacular Swiss Alps, the Titlis Cliff Walk is the highest elevation suspension bridge in Europe. It’s a stunning sight, although terrifying for those preparing to cross the immense chasm that lies below.
Located almost 10,000 feet above sea level, just getting here is a challenge, although the greatest test awaits those preparing to set foot on the narrow platform. It’s 100 feet from end to end and, and weather conditions can change quickly up here, heavy snow being an ever-present danger for those heading up Mount Titlis.
At the summit, the route leads you through the glacier cave via an underground tunnel and on to the viewing platform at the south wall window. The suspension bridge stretches from here to the Ice Flyer glacier chair lift station. The views into the abyss below are breathtaking, but to cross the bridge, you’ll need nerves as strong as the steel cables from which it hangs.
