The longest suspension bridge in the world was inaugurated yesterday (July 29) in Randa, Switzerland. Hikers can now cross the Europaweg (Europe Bridge) which connects Grächen and Zermatt and measures nearly 500m. Zermatt Tourist Board says it is the longest in the world, hanging at a heady 85m above the Grabengufer ravine, although a 405m bridge in Reutte, Austria hangs 110m higher. The Europaweg replaces another bridge which was closed in 2010 after it was damaged by falling rocks.
