MORSDORF, Germany – Thrillseekers are flocking to a new bridge in Germany that provides dizzying views of the canyon below.

The country’s longest suspension bridge sits about 91 metres above the floor in Geierley canyon.

The bridge stretches a whopping 366 metres across a fairytale forest between Morsdorf and Sosberg in western Germany, according to local news site.

While the bridge is the main attraction in the region, tourism officials are also using it to promote hiking trails in the area.

Construction of the bridge began in May and it was completed in record time, just 130 days later.

Tourism officials hope the bridge will draw 180,000 visitors annually, and inject around €2.5 million into the economy.

While terrifying in its own right, the bridge in Germany is no competition to the Grand Canyon of skywalk in China, also known as the ‘scariest bridge in the world’.
