    Default The Swiss Skywalk

    For those of you who may have sampled the Las Vegas Skywalk in the Grand canyon, here is the local Grindelwald one in the canton of Bern. When you walk to the very end (enough for two people side by side, not breathing), the floor is glass with a nice view below of the 'drop' straight down!!! Not for those who suffer from vertigo!!! But on a good day the vista is spectacular of the Wetterhorn, Mönch, Eiger, Lauberhorn & Schilthorn.

    That's pretty impressive Steve. Looks like a perfect day. I would be Ok on the skywalk so long as no one jumped up and down on the end! I'm not too bad with heights, and once climbed our Storey Bridge without a harness. My knuckles were white.

    Great views Steve but you would not get me up there for all the tea in China.

    Steve:

    Just went into my bucket! Really cool, however, maybe not on a really windy day! Thanks for sharing.

    I think the mind is very reluctant to trust a glass floor, even if it knows the glass is strong!
