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.
