Officially opened in May 2017, the Titan RT pedestrian suspension bridge spans the Rappbode Dam in Eastern Germany. With its suspended length of 458 meters, the bridge used to broke the world's record of the longest pedestrian suspension bridge. Only two months later, however, it was outdone by the length of Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge in Switzerland.
The bridge's operator, Harzdrenalin, needed almost five years of planning and constructing to create this stunning bridge. Visitors enjoy the breathtaking views or do a 75-meter pendulum jump from the structure. The bridge is located near the city of Oberharz am Brocken, a small town in Saxony-Anhalt.
- Titan RT Pedestrian Suspension Bridge across the Rappbode Dam is among the 15 best rated Tourist Attractions in Germany.
