Geierlay suspension bridge near Mörsdorf

Those who are afraid of heights can also look at it from a safe distance: the Geierlay suspension rope bridge in Hunsrück. Since 2015, the famous bridge with a length of 360 metres has led over the 100-metre-deep stream valley. As one of the longest suspension rope bridges in Europe, the tourist attraction attracts around 350,000 visitors every year. The bridge, which is open all year round, does not charge admission and owes its name to the rocky slope called Geierslay, where birds of prey used to live. The Geierlay Bridge was constructed on the model of the new Trift Bridge in the Swiss Alps. Following the Nepalese construction method, four supporting cables run here, on which wooden planks were mounted as a walking surface.
