Germany's Longest Rope Suspension Bridge

Must have a head for heights! Fearless holidaymakers are the first to cross Germany's longest rope suspension bridge.

A new attraction in western Germany is drawing thousands of daredevil tourists every day thanks to its dizzying views nearly 300ft above a canyon floor. Fearless visitors crossed the newly-erected rope suspension bridge for the first time this weekend, taking in the stunning scenery high above the trees at Geierley canyon.

At nearly 1,200ft in length, it is Germany’s longest rope suspension bridge – and those who dare to cross it must have a head for heights. With plenty of spots to take the perfect selfie, the bridge is set in a picturesque forest between the towns of Morsdorf and Sosberg, near Germany’s border with Luxembourg.

It was the brainchild of local officials, who were looking for ways to lure more tourists to the region and support local businesses.

In photo is the traffic jam on G4 Beijing–Hong Kong–Macau Expressway on October 6, 2015, as National Day holidays draw to end and people are heading back.

The congestion is due to a new checkpoint ahead. This National Day Golden Week sees an explosion in tourism. Transportation statistics show that over 750 million Chinese are in the moving, which is half of the nation’s population. The figure marks a 6.1 year-on-year increase.

This year, the Mid-Autumn Festival on September 27 is followed directly by the "Golden Week" from October 1 to October 7. With a total of nine-day-holiday, the historic daily passenger loads on Chinese highways and railways have exceeded the figures from this year's Spring Festival Travel Season.
