To get to the bridge, you first need to get the Trift aerial cable car to the Trift valley, followed by a 90 minute hike to the Trift Glacier.

A solution born out of the Switzerland’s changing environment, this 170 meter long pedestrian suspension bridge allows intrepid hikers to complete the Trift mountain route without the Trift Glacier serving as a natural crossing.

Yes, global warming may have reduced a mighty glacial formation into a mere snow mound, but now the Trift Bridge has gone on to become a popular tourist attraction for adventurers, offering a spectacular vantage point of the ever disappearing glacier and the dramatic surrounding landscape.

To get to the bridge, you first need to get the Trift aerial cable car to the Trift valley, followed by a 90 minute hike to the Trift Glacier. Past the bridge lies the Trift Hut, the hikers end point for the Trift route, and a great place to admire the beauty of the rugged marvels of the Swiss Alps.
