Walking on Air: The Geierlay Experience

In the heart of the captivating Hunsrück mountain range in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, lies a remarkable feat of engineering: the Geierlay Suspension Bridge. Stretching an impressive 360 meters across the Mörsdorfer Bachtal valley, Geierlay Bridge majestically hangs approximately 100 meters above the ground. Its elegant suspension design invites pedestrians to traverse this expanse, suspended seemingly weightlessly between sky and earth.
