Tips

    The suspension bridge near Holzgau crosses the Höhenbach Gorge at a length of 200.5 meters and a height of 110 meters. The detour here is particularly worthwhile when it is dark, because then the bridge shines in great lighting.

    In contrast to some other spectacular suspension bridges, the suspension bridge in Holzgau is freely accessible and can be crossed free of charge.

    The rope suspension bridge near Holzgau in the Lech Valley is 200.5 meters long, 1.20 meters wide, 110 meters high and spans the wild and romantic Höhenbach gorge from the slopes on Gföllberg with the other side on Schiggenberg. At night it is illuminated with LED lighting. At times it was the longest and highest rope suspension bridge in the country.
    The tread is designed with gratings so that you can look straight down and its load capacity is designed for a total of 630 people.

    Beautiful suspension bridge.
    You can also walk under the bridge and admire the bridge from below.

    Yes, a very nice experience, the view and feeling how the bridge moves.
    You shouldn't be afraid of heights and be free from vertigo, would be an advantage.
    We are the way up to the Uta coffee and from there down to Holzgau
    Along bubbling water .......

    Good view over the valley. The bridge runs high above the valley. I only know them from below from the valley.

    The suspension bridge near Holzgau is considered the longest suspension bridge in Austria. It is 200.5 m long and 110 m high and spans the wild and romantic Höhenbach gorge near Holzgau. Tourist she is not advertised much. It is apparently also proposed no walk to wander, which I think is a pity. So I myself tried to plan and test a first small circuit. It is spectacular and worth experiencing and recommending. Somewhat confusing, I find that there is another, twice as long suspension bridge at Reutte.

    The suspension bridge is safe and well anchored. Even in stronger winds, it barely fluctuates. You have a wonderful view. If you are afraid of heights, but you can take the alternative route over the Simms waterfall and does not have to cross the bridge.

    Definitely one of the highlights on the Lechwanderweg! The way to the bridge is worthwhile !!!

    The suspension bridge is constructed similarly to the Highline 179 at Reutte, only about 1/2 times as long, but the height is almost the same. A certain head for heights is an advantage, as the bridge fluctuates not only in height but also when walking. The floor consists of gratings through which you can see into the valley, sturdy shoes should not be missing. The landscape is more beautiful with 2 waterfalls than with the Highline and there are two nice places to stop with the Cafe Uta and the Rossgumpen Alm.
    Admission to the suspension bridge is not charged, contrary to the Highline 179 (here 8.- € / person are called).

    Here there is a bench to rest, a large trail board and a pretty carving to admire.

    The suspension bridge near Holzgau im Lechtal, also known as the Holzgau suspension bridge, is a 200.5 meter long, 1.20 meter wide and 110 meter high rope suspension bridge in Austria. At times it was the longest and highest rope suspension bridge in Austria. It spans the Höhenbachtal Gorge north of the village. [1]

    At the two edges of the gorge there are 5.20 m high pylons made of steel girders, over which the two 50 mm thick suspension ropes are guided, which are anchored in the ground behind the pylons with nine rock anchors each. The vertical hangers are attached to the carrying ropes and carry the running surface covered with a grating. A 1.30 m high handrail is mounted on both sides of the walking surface, which is connected to the grating by a wire mesh. The bridge is guyed by ropes leading down to the slopes of the gorge to prevent excessive vibrations. At night the bridge is illuminated with LEDs. The bridge is designed for a load of 630 people. The plans were drawn up by the architecture firm Walch from Reutte.

    The 125 km long European long-distance hiking trail, Lechweg, runs over the bridge on the Gföll- zum Schiggenberg. On March 1, 2012, it was released for use. The official opening took place together with Lechweg on June 15, 2012. The construction costs amounted to approx. € 560,000 for the bridge and € 90,000 for the feeder roads. 2/3 of the costs were borne by the EU and the state of Tyrol.

    The suspension bridge, which always sways slightly, can also be bypassed. Those who do not have a head for heights can hike down into the Höhenbachtal, past the artificial Simmswasserfall to Café Uta. From there a hiking trail leads up to the Schigge.

    You should be suitable for high altitudes. But the view is very nice from the slightly swaying bridge down into the valley. But the view of the bridge is also impressive.

    Very impressive construction. I was down through the valley and unfortunately could not cross the bridge.

    The Holzgauer suspension bridge is not the longest in the world, it was the "Highline179". Since the end of 2014, the Highline179 now carries the title of the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world in Tibet Style. As a circular route there are several possibilities, e.g. from Holzgau over the bridge to the Cafe Uta and further to the Lower Roßgumpenalpe, back over the Simms waterfalls, so under the bridge through. Furthermore, the Lechweg and ViaAlpina leads over the bridge. The way over laughter and the Berglerwald is also very nice.

    The construction of the Holzgau suspension bridge (opened in 2012) made the transition from the sunny slopes on Gföllberg over to the sunny plateaus on Schiggenberg possible.
    It is an important gap closure on the 125 km long hiking route of the "Lechweg".
    You can park directly behind the town hall, the daily fee for cars is € 3.00 as of 2018
