Reutte, Austria
About Highline179
"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“.

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.

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.

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 stumbled upon this while on a road trip in the fall of 2018 and it was stunning! Great ruins to tour and the suspension bridge definitely got our hearts racing (we didn’t make it far after looking down). We spent hours exploring and would highly recommend.
