At 200.5 meters in length and 110 meters high, the suspension bridge near Holzgau crosses the Höhenbach gorge. Especially worthwhile is the detour here, 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 walked on for free.

The rope suspension bridge at Holzgau in the Lechtal is 200.5 meters long, 1.20 meters wide, 110 meters high and spans the wildly romantic Höhenbachschlucht from the slopes on the Gföllberg with the other side on the 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 also look directly down and their carrying capacity is designed for a total of 630 people.

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.

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

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.

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 suspension bridge is built similar to the Highline 179 at Reutte, although only about 1/2 times as long, but the height is almost equal. A certain fear of heights is already advantageous, since the bridge fluctuates in addition to the height when walking. The floor consists of gratings through which you can see the valley, sturdy shoes should not be missing. The landscape is more beautiful with 2 waterfalls than the Highline and it is with the Cafe Uta and the Rossgumpen Alm, two beautiful stops on the way.
Entrance to the suspension bridge will not be charged contrary to Highline 179 (8.- € / person will be called here).

The construction of the Holzgauer suspension bridge (opened in 2012) enabled the transition from the sunny slopes on the Gföllberg to the sunny plateaus on the Schiggenberg.
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
