The best way to get a bird’s eye of view is to go where only birds usually fly. The Swiss Alps offer a majestic panorama of green mountains in the summer and now you can get a unique glimpse of the view hanging in the air from a record-breaking suspension bridge.

As the video from ABC News shows, the newly opened Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge, which hangs across a valley between the cities of Zermatt and Grächen is 1,640 feet long, making it officially the longest in the world. As you make your way across the narrow hanging bridge you’re treated to some of the best views of the famous Matterhorn, Weisshorn and Bernese Alps.

At its highest point, the bridge puts you nearly 300 feet above the ground. While it does feature a system that prevents it from swinging, it might not be the best option for those who have a fear of heights. If your family is ready and willing to be adventurous though, the quick trek across the bridge only takes about ten minutes, but offers memories that are sure to last a lifetime.
