Dreamloops Hikes - Geierlay Hanging Bridge

Cross the Geierlay, Germany’s longest hanging suspension bridge!

Note: This event has already passed.

At 360 meters long, and up to 100 meters about ground level, the Geierlay Suspension Bridge will require confidence and a head for heights to cross.  While approximately 1 out of 5 people who go to the bridge turn around and walk away, crossing this bridge will be the highlight of your day hiking in the Hunsruck.  The 6.4 km long hiking path will first cross under the bridge where you can admire this extravagant engineering marvel from below, before climbing to the bridge head and crossing the hanging bridge.
