Owner description: "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“.

Very cool experience (especially if you’re scared of height) , walking on a iron rope bridge 113 mt height it’s something special.

It is scary up there! I wouldn't imagine that my lags would refuse to go for a second! But than they did - thanks God. It is worth to make a stop on your way to or back from your ski-holiday. It'll take about 2 hours to go up and down. There is no train, there is no bus - you should walk. But it takes 15-20 minutes to go up to the bridge itself. And then you'll be rewarded with the view and emotions. So, go there and feel the difference.

Entrance price is Euro 8,-.

Driven under this bridge numerous times and finally decided to visit. It was all very low key but we did visit in Winter. After a relatively steep walk for 20 minutes through woods (fabulous winter wonderland in Feb), you reach the bottom of the castle ruins. The bridge entrance is just to the right and you scan your ticket at the electronic gates to enter. The bridge does sway and is high - my husband is scared of heights but managed it all ok holding onto the sides and with no one else on the bridge - more visitors might create more wobble! You can see through the floor on the grid so don't look down if you're nervous.

Once you get to the other side, there is another electronic gate which you need to exit through to get to the viewing platform which looks over the valley across to the castle. Your ticket allows you to do this only once and its the best way to see the magnificent views as they unobstructed from the platform - its very scenic and great for photos.

Total time spent there was no more than 1.5 - 2 hours but definitely worth doing.

Vertigo sufferers stay away! Amazing views and weird sensation walking along the grided floor and looking way down below. The signs say "no vomiting" ....as if you had a choice!

We were in the neighborhood for a business trip so we put this attraction on the list. That was a great decision. There is a small parking space down (parking fee € 4) and there is an office to get tickets for groups (ticket € 8 each). However up near the bridge there is also a ticket machine. If you not sure you want to walk the bridge, buy your ticket there.
It’s about a 20 minute climb to the top and you need a good condition to make it in that time. Few man stayed behind to guard our cars (they say) but the rest wend up. We started as a group but half way you could clearly see the difference.
Once up there is a great view. You instantly forget all the hard work to get there. If you not want to walk the bridge you didn’t go there for nothing. There is e great view and as bonus the Burgenwelten Ehrenberg.
Most of us walked the bridge and on the bridge and other side also great views. I didn’t want to miss this one.
