Hanging in the Longest Hanging Bridge in Austria (+links how to go there by bus)

by Rafika Nurulhuda

Tyrol is surely one of the most favourite destinations in winter season. But there are other various interesting sites and natures that you could enjoy during summer or autumn season.

Visit Innsbruck, the capital city of Tyrol, dan explore this wonderful city that is squeezed between two mountains (Nordkette and Patscherkoffel) and run by the river Inns. It might not be as big as Vienna but being able to see the gigantic mountains right from where you stay, Innsbruck could be a dream city of many people.

When you do come to Innsbruck, take some time to visit a new tourist site in Reutte, Tirol: Highline179. It is the longest hanging bridge from World Records that is just launched for public in 2014.
Ticket price: EUR 8 (including zurück)

Highline179 is the where you will experience the 400 meter Tibet-style hanging bridge and it is designed to connect between the Ehrenberg ruins and Fort Claudia and with the height of around 100 meters, it will make you feel like you are flying--or hanging in the air!

To get up there, one must "berg-wandern" around 15 minutes (there is no lift so be prepared!)

 For those of you who are afraid of heights, walk slowly, keep holding on, don't look down, no doubt you will (for a few seconds) forget that you are high up because you will be amazed by the beautiful nature view from above, and in just a few minutes, you arrive!
