It's being called the "world's scariest bridge," and now anyone who doesn't have a fear of heights or getting blown off a Swiss mountaintop, can try their hand at walking across the highest suspension bridge in Europe.
The newly opened Titlis Cliff Walk is a pedestrian bridge 9,000 ft. above sea level, with mind-blowing vistas of the Swiss Alps (that is when there isn't a storm). It took over 5 months to build at a cost of $1.6 million.
Pedestrians can walk the foot bridge, which is just 3 ft.wide and 328 ft. long.
The bridge was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of a cableway which joined the towns of Engelberg and Gerschnialp in January 1913.
It's grand opening last week was marked by a huge snow storm that reduced visibility to just a few feet - leaving visitors with no idea of what lay beneath them.
