  • Kathi

    The Highline179 connects the ruins Ehrenberg with the Fort Claudia. History meets innovation, so to speak. At the opening of the bridge in November 2014, the 406 m long bridge was the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world in "Tibet style".

    The bridge is open 365 days a year from 8 to 22 o'clock. Adult tickets are available for 8 euros at the ticket machine. Discounted tickets are only available at the Ticket Center in the Burgenwelt Ehrenberg.

    The highline179 is a pedestrian suspension bridge in the form of a rope bridge over the Fernpassstraße B 179 south of Reutte in Tirol (Austria). It extends at an altitude of 113 to 114 m over the Ehrenberg castle world and connects the ruin Ehrenberg with the Fort Claudia. The location of the bridge was chosen so that it was one of the longest pedestrian suspension bridges in the world with a span of 406 m at the time of completion. [1] [2] It not only serves to facilitate the visit of the two castle ruins, but is also intended to be an independent tourist attraction for the community of Reutte.

    Hello,
    You should have experienced the bridge but it looks much more harmless from below as you will feel or experience it.
    It takes a bit of courage to cross the 406 meter pedestrian suspension bridge 114 meters up.
    It is of course well secured but somewhat dizziness, and you should not be afraid of high altitude.
    The bridge swings slightly back and forth and the floor is only provided with grating grates where you can see the 113m directly down.
    But for 8 € fee you get for his courage a wonderful panoramic view of the valley of Reutte and the surrounding mountains - a look just kick, as the slogan promises.
    Otherwise, enjoy the crossing.

    You should have seen that and of course go over it once.
    But attention, you should be free from giddiness.
    And there are also a few ruins to look at. Nice for an afternoon, not exhausting.

    It is far from the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world. The view is only beautiful in one direction, down to the very busy Fernpassstraße and the noise and stench of the cars is only something for city people, nature lovers will be a bit appalled. Who wants to commit a higher, scenic much more beautiful and free suspension bridge must go to the Lechtal to Holzgau. This suspension bridge opens up one of the most beautiful hiking trails to the Roßgumpenalm.

    even if it is no longer the largest suspension bridge in the world, just because of the location between the castle ruins and the mountains, always worth a trip and thrill.

    breathtaking and an adrenalin and thrill of the special kind. Wonderfully embedded by two castle ruins and a gigantic mountain scenery. A must for every hanging bridge fan!

    It is already an experience to walk over such a big suspension bridge. You feel like "drunk" because the bridge is always in motion and you are constantly trying to balance. The view is great and it certainly has its charms over there at any time of the year and any time of the day.
