First suspension bridge in the world connecting two peaks opens in Gstaad, Switzerland

Peak Walk by Tissot
The Swiss resort of Gstaad has announced the opening of the spectacular “Peak Walk by Tissot” suspension bridge at Glacier 3000, the only glacier ski area in the Bernese Oberland, located at 3000 metres. The opening of this impressive bridge will take place tomorrow, 24th October, and visitors will be able to take in the outstanding views of the Alps free of charge, all year around. 

This extensive project, estimated to be worth 1.8 million Swiss francs, will be the first hanging bridge in the world connecting two peaks. The 107 metre Peak Walk begins at the View Point and ends at the Scex Rouge peak. The view stretches across 4,000 metres, over 24 summits of the region, famously including Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and the Bernese Alps.

On October 25th, Glacier 3000 will officially open Gstaad’s winter season, giving adventurous travellers something to look forward to. The Glacier’s Snowpark has undergone a substantial upgrade offering freestyle skiers a variety of fun and spectacular jumps. The newest features include rail and line jumps, along with the exhilarating Big Air jump. In addition, from October to May, the Glacier boasts 25 km of runs between 1'350 and 3'000 meters.

On Glacier 3000, visitors can also satiate their shopping appetites at the highest shop in the region. The recently renovated shop at the Scex Rouge mountain top presents a selection of well-known watch brands such as Tissot, Victorinox, Alpina, Frederique Constant, Sevenfriday, Oris and Swatch as well as a wide selection of sportswear and souvenirs.
