Suspension Bridge

Bad Gastein

The legendary suspension bridge in Gastein

The 140 m long suspension bridge on the Stubnerkogel is accessible all year round and is located not far from the Stubnerkogel cable car mountain station in Bad Gastein. The bridge guides its visitors from the terrace of the Stubnerkogel restaurant to the sender station and guarantees breath-taking views on the surrounding Mountains.

Idea of the construction

“With its support and wind cables to limit vibration the bridge can withstand wind speeds of up to 200 km/h”, Franz Schafflinger, manager of the lift operator, puts our minds at rest. His idea to build a suspended bridge here came from seeing visitors who always “stared across the cliffs in awe“. “At first I was only joking”, Schafflinger continues, “when I said we would span a hanging bridge across!”
