The Highline179 bridge was officially opened to visitors two weeks ago. It stretches high above the B179 Fern Pass federal highway, from which it derives its name, from the Ehrenberg castle ruins to Fort Claudia.
Ehrenberg Castle is one of the major attractions in the region.
“The entry into the Guinness Book of Records is the icing on the cake for us,” said Hermann Ruepp, chairman of the TVB Naturparkregion Reutte.
The longest suspension bridge in the world is in Sochi, Russia.
500 people are allowed on the Highline179 bridge at any one time. It is open daily from 8am to 10pm.
