The circular hike to the Randa Suspension Bridge goes through larchwood forests and leads to an imposing record construction: the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world.
The path begins at the Randa train station, where the "Europabrücke" signs point in the correct direction. Through larchwood forests and past the "Hohtschugga" viewing point, hikers reach the world-record holding "Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge". At 494 m, it is the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world. It takes almost 10 minutes to cross it and in the middle, swaying walkers are at the highest point: 85 m above the Grabengufer. After crossing, the path continues right back to Randa. As an option, one could make a detour to the Europa hut after the bridge.
For a practice tour, the shorter suspension bridge above Zermatt at Furi is just right. At 100 m long, it crosses the Gorner Gorge and is 90 m high at its highest point.
Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).

The drive from Visp to Randa takes about 30–40 min. The road leads through the wild and beautiful Mattertal valley.
There is a public multi-storey car park by the railway station in Randa; simply follow the signs.
