These breathtakingly stunning views of nature were used as orientation points by those responsible for mapping out the path in the villages of St. Niklaus, Grächen, Randa, Täsch and Zermatt to create the Europaweg in 1997. The first stage from Grächen was redesigned in 2021 and now leads on a varied and spectacular route to the Europa Hut above Randa. From here it goes over the suspension bridge – the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the Alps which traverses the Grabengufer. The bridge is 494 m long and 85 m above the chasm below at its highest point. The path then continues in the direction of Täschalp and finally to Zermatt.
