About
"History meets innovation" is undoubtedly the best description for this unique setting and spectacular #ViewWithThrill". In the midst of one of the most important fortified areas of Central Europe, surrounded by wonderful scenery and imposing mountain chains, highline179 connects the castle ruins of Ehrenberg with Fort Claudia. Due to highline179's narrow and open design, visitors experience a remarkable floating sensation. At a height of 114 m and with a 360° panorama, the visit is really a unique experience. Daring visitors have been proving their courage by conquering highline179 since November 2014. In December 2014, the rope suspension bridge gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records as „Longest Tibet-style footbridge“.

Even though I suffer heights, I decided to challenge my fears and give a go to this huge Tibetan style bridge spanning across two mountains in Tyrol.
The bridge swings eerily, both because of the constant wind and because of the people walking on it: so definitely not for the faint of heart!
The central portion has higher protections than the ends, where you only have a waist high mesh (I'd say about 1.1m).
It's the longest Tibetan bridge in the world, so it takes a while to cross it (especially if you have jelly legs when on it, like me).

In the end it's an exciting and worthy adventure. Give it a try!

There's parking available for a fee at the entrance and you can either climb to the top and pay for the bridge only, or pay a higher fee and use the minitrain.

We have been under this bridge many times on numerous motorcycle trips in europe, and we have wanted to do this for a long time. It is open 8am to 10pm 365 days a year and is very good value. There is plenty of pay parking available, and you can get a funicular to the top if you don't fancy walking (it wasn't working when we visited). The views from the bridge are excellent however be warned it is nit suitable if you don't like heights. The footway is mesh so you can see straight own to the valley floor below. There are also 3 forts you can visit at the top which are all free and there is plenty to see and loads of information boards. Highly recommended!!

We stumbled across this and are so glad we did! In the area for one night on our drive to Italy from the UK. It is an incredible experience!! Cost my family €75 (2 adults; 3 children aged 11) as we arrived at 8:45pm and purchased tickets from the self-service machine as the ticket office was closed. I believe tickets are cheaper if purchased via the office. Waiting for the lift and walking to the bridge only took about 15 mins in total, and we did the whole experience in approx 1 hr. It was lovely doing during the evening and wasn’t at all busy.

Incredible experience with a stunning view to the surrounding mountains, as well as the Ehrenberg Castle and the town of Reutte. The ticket prices are pretty cheap, specially if you take the 20m hiking path (which is a pleasant foret route). Besides the breathtaking views, you can also feel the world crumbling beneath your feet, as this suspension bridge is very flexible and see through. As a result, it shakes and trembles quite a lot, especially if it's windy, while allowing visitors to see everything (even whats right below you). As such, I really don't recommend visiting if you have fear of heights. For everyone else, it should be a fun, exhilarating, one of a kind experience!

We stayed at Reutte and knew high line 179 was there. Before returning home we decided to add this attraction to our holiday. It is open, at least in the summer, from 8 am till 10 pm. We were there at 8.30 am and were one of the first. Parking is 5 euro and ticket is 8 euro (normal price for adult). Paying at ticket shop in cash or cart. We walked up, quite steep but good path, in around 15 minutes. You can take an elevator but you have to pay for it separately. The bridge is long, more than 400 meters, and you can imagine it well if you start your way over jt. Luckily it was not crowded and there was not much wind so the bridge was not very wobbly. The handrail is high which gives a save feeling. If don’t like heights but I managed to get over the bridge and back. It was a cool experience and the views on the surroundings are nice. You can also visit the fortress but we didn’t.

One of the best place to visit both in summer and winter. It has an incredible view for the alps and the suspension bridge is like cherry on top. The castle is small but interesting. It's a must go and has to be on bucket list.

An experience anyone can do, even 60 something year olds! You know nothing terrible is going to happen, but once the bridge wobbles after someone heavy or fast walks by you grab the handrail. Great views and a wonderful feeling to actually do it. We walked up the path (no harder than going up to most of the castles and good exercise). Scariest part of this was leaving the parking area onto the main rood.

Not for the fainthearted. This is not a walk in the park. This is a serious stretch on a bridge that moves. 8 euro to do it, more if you take the elevator to the bridge. Otherwise, 15 minute climb up to the bridge. If you are not well balanced, don’t go, if you are afraid of heights, DONT GO.

The Highline179 is a massive suspension bridge located in Reutte, a small town in the western Austrian state of Tirol.

This engineering marvel is one of the unique things to do in your life. Visiting any typical European cities in Germany, Spain, or France won’t give you this feeling as your day’s activity is almost the same. Nevertheless, it was great fun visiting the bridge with my bunch of friends.

I wish to visit the Highline179 once again in winter for a 360° view of the snow.

The complete review of my experience is present in my travel blog Infinitewalks. I have included the price, how to reach by bus, hiking routes etc

Great place for a hike. After about 20 minutes of hiking you reach a castle in ruins with amazing views of Reutte. Then you can walk the highline bridge which was pretty scary. Especially if its windy because the bridge shakes and sways. Absolutely worth a trip for the views alone.
