Soaring above a gorge, Hangebrucke offers spectacular views over the foaming river and idyllic mountain landscape of rocks, valleys, and larch woods. Crossing the wobbly 100 m (328 ft) long and 90 m (295 ft) high suspension bridge can be both fun and scary, especially for those with a fear of heights. Once on the other side, consider having a picnic at one of the nearby barbecue sites or visit the Dossen glacier garden and see glacial mills. The bridge is generally closed in the winter.

Great view from the bridge - not too bouncy with only a few people on it!
