Hanging Around The Hunsrück

A couple of years ago we ventured just a few miles out of the valley to the “Geierlay Hängseilbrücke” at Mörsdorf in the Hunsrück. Wow, what a bridge that is!


Opened just a little over two years ago, at 360 meters in length it’s the longest rope (or in this case, cable) suspension bridge in Germany. It sits about 100 metres at its highest point and whilst it is not for the faint hearted, the views from the bridge itself are very impressive.

The bridge is part of a network of walking and hiking trails that criss cross the area. It is about a kilometer by foot from the village of Mörsdorf where parking is available (sadly not free, although access to the bridge is) along with a visitor centre and a couple of cafes.

By the way, please excuse my finger blurring the bottom left of the picture!

  1. Thank you for following me on my twitter site: @MontageMadness. I spent 6 months working in Germany and living in Zell in 1989. My favorite memories are visiting the Globus supermarket, walking the foot bridge over the Mosel, and visiting the small wine cellars in the neighborhood.

    1. Zell is a very special place. I live between there, Essen and Kuwait, although Zell is the place where I feel most relaxed. When I drive down through the hills towards Alf, the moment I reach the river I just feel strangely liberated! Globus is great as it has everything you need including a 24h outdoor laundrette!!
