Längste Hängebrücke der Welt in Zermatt eröffnet

Atemberaubend: Sie führt teilweise in 85 Metern Höhe über den Abgrund.

Eine fast 500 Meter lange Hängebrücke lädt schwindelfreie Wanderer in der Schweiz seit Samstag zur Überquerung des Grabengufers bei Zermatt ein. Die Brücke ist 494 Meter lang und führt in teils 85 Metern Höhe über den Abgrund. Er ist durch das Trittgitter zu sehen. Die Brücke wurde am Samstag feierlich eröffnet. Sie ist nach Angaben von Zermatt Tourismus die längste Hängebrücke der Welt. In Reutte in Tirol hängt eine Brücke, die zwar mit bis zu 110 Metern höher, aber nur 405 Meter lang ist.

Eine Brücke, die nicht schwingt

Die Firma Swissrope habe ein besonders Dämpfungssystem eingebaut, so dass die Brücke kaum ins Schwingen gerate, teilte Zermatt Tourismus mit. Die Tragseile wiegen acht Tonnen. Die neue Brücke komplementiert eine zweitägige Wanderstrecke zwischen Grächen und Zermatt mit Blick auf das Matterhorn (4.478 Meter). Sie ersetzt eine frühere Version, die 2010 nach wenigen Monaten aus Sicherheitsgründen geschlossen werden musste. Steinschlag hatte die Brücke beschädigt. Seitdem mussten Wanderer 500 Höhenmeter ins Tal ab- und auf der anderen Seite wieder aufsteigen. Die neue Brücke ist den Angaben zufolge deutlich tiefer verankert.
