Oberried hanging bridge


suspension bridge

Follow in the footsteps of the pilgrims and enjoy the view over Lake Brienz

Cross the 70 m hanging bridge which crosses the untamed Unterweidligraben valley, also known as the Ebliggraben. The bridge links the Jakobsweg between Oberried and Brienz. The bridge is open from spring to autumn and is disassembled in winter.

The right bank of Lake Brienz features a pedestrian and cycle path that crosses green fields and beautiful woodland to Interlaken. This forms part of the Jakobsweg, which takes pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela. The 70 m hanging bridge eases the crossing over the Unterweidligraben valley over Ebligen. The bridge is disassembled in winter and reassembled in spring. Up on the bridge, you can enjoy a superb view over the turquoise-blue waters of Lake Brienz and the other side of the valley.
