TUESDAY TRAVEL / PEAK TO PEAK EXPERIENCE
Cross Europe’s new mountain bridge
GUEST BLOG—By Claire Bentley, Holiday Guru for British Airways--Seen the Matterhorn? We bet you’ve never seen it like this. Coinciding with the 150-year anniversary of the first ascent of Switzerland’s famous mountain, a new suspension bridge offers visitors another way to see the summit. Named “The Peak Walk by Tissot” hangs at 3,000 metres, connecting the View Point and Scex Rouge peaks in Gstaad. It’s the world’s first hanging bridge connecting two peaks and offers 107 metres of walkway with views over spectacular Alpine scenery. It’s what the panoramic setting on your camera was made for.
