Long Description:
EN: This suspension bridge is located in the Joli Gorge north of Niedergesteln. It is 24 meters long and 25 meters high. It was built in 2005 and connects the village of Niedergesteln in the valley with the hiking trails along the Lötschberg south ramp.

The lower access to the bridge is very special. The hiking path first leads through a tunnel of a water-bearing irrigation canal into the gorge and there via a metal staircase on the rock face up to the bridgehead.
