The impressive suspension bridge spanning the Schlappintobel is an integrative element of the Klosterser Höhenweg trail and an important sub-project of the PRE Klosters. The bridge construction started in spring 2017 and progressed rapidly. With a total length of 70.5 meters, the rope-wood construction spans the Schlappintobel with its highest point at 19 meters above ground.
The new bridge was inaugurated and handed over to the public on 10 June 2017 with a small bridge festival in beautiful summer weather.
The bridge can be reached in a 15 minute walk from the Madrisabahn valley station and is also accessible with small children.
