Holzgau Suspension Bridge


Challenge yourself to make it across the spectacular, 200-meter long suspension footbridge that crosses Höhenbach Canyon at an incredible 105 meters above ground. The swinging bridge gives hikers the chance to cross from one side of the canyon to the other without the need for a long and strenuous detour.

Built just a few years ago, the Holzgau Suspension Bridge has already become an iconic landmark of Lechtal Valley. Since its opening in 2012, the sound structure has been regularly utilized by residents and hikers along 125-kilometer long Lech River Trail as a legitimate connector between the sunny slopes of Gföllberg and the sunny upland plateau of Schiggenberg. The suspension footbridge spans Höhenbach Canyon at an incredible 105 meters above ground and also forms part of the European E5 Long Distance Hiking Route from Lake Constance all the way to the Adriatic Sea. It is just a short walk from the bridge to scenic Simms Waterfall. At night, the handrails of the bridge are lit with LEDs. The picturesque village of Holzgau is famous for the distinctive art of wall-painting that adorns many of its homes and is well worth a visit.
