From Riederalp over the suspension bridge to Belalp

  • start: Belalp (2095 m)
  • destination: Riederalp

The 124-meter-long hanging bridge is a highlight in the Aletsch hiking paradise. The suspension bridge is not merely a convenient connection between Belalp and Riederalp, it crosses the gorge a dizzying 80 meters above the water right in front of the Aletsch glacier’s snout. A truly thrilling and memorable experience.

Once upon a time, one crossed the Aletsch glacier to get from Belalp to Riederalp. However, the glacier’s retreat has rendered this impossible. The suspension bridge that was built in 2008 in cooperation with Pro Natura, the WWF and UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch reestablishes this link.
