After we have discovered the Castle of Cochem we are heading on to our final destination: A hiking track through the Geierlay Valley – crossing the Geierlay suspension bridge. Germanys longest suspension bridge with a length of over 350 meters and a height of over 100 meters makes an exciting experience out in the stunning German countryside! Do you dare to cross it?
*The hike difficulty is for beginners. The main route is about 6 km for which we need about 2.5 – 3.5 hours. If you do not dare to cross the bridge or simply do not want to hike the full track, it is possible to take a shortcut without crossing the bridge.
