Germany's Longest Rope Suspension Bridge 300 Feet Above a Canyon Floor

There are thousands of adventure lovers going to newly installed attraction in Western Germany to dizzying views of rope suspension bridge. At nearly 1,200ft in length this is Germany’s longest rope suspension bridge, about 300 feet above a canyon floor. The fearless holidaymakers are feeling great attraction to this rope bridge. The daredevil’s tourist crossed the newly erected rope suspension bridge, taking in stunning scenery high above the trees at Geierley canyon.

The selfie lovers can enjoy with plenty of spots available at bridge for perfect picture forest between the towns of Morsdorf and Sosberg, near Germany’s border with Luxembourg. However, it was the brainchild of local officials, who were considering for different ways to temptation more tourists to the region and support local businesses. The rope bridge idea was first proposed in 2006 but plans were abandoned after they were deemed infeasible. So, after five years, the project was resuscitated and feasibility was launched this time with better results.

Though the bridge is the main attraction, tourism bosses are using it to encourage four-mile hiking trails in the region. Moreover, after a contract was awarded to a Swiss building firm in Dec 2014, construction works started on 26 May and it finished in record time, with the bridge opening to thrill seekers 130 days later. It is estimated that that the bridge should draw 170,000 tourists annually, and officials are hoping 50,000 of them will be overnight guests who will stay at hotels or bed and breakfasts and help to pour an additional €2.5million into the local economy.
