Geierlay is the second-longest suspension bridge in Germany with 360 meters at the height of 100 meters. In contrast to the longest suspension bridge in the Harz, the entrance is for free.
Geierlay is one of the most picturesque bridges in Germany. It's a half-day trip to the popular suspension bridge if you are in the Hunsrück area, at river Moselle, Eltz Castle, or as a good stopover. The bridge is open 24/7. The visitor terminal is opened each day from 10 am to 4 pm and provides a map in different languages.
It's utterly crowded during the summer and weekends are the worst, especially on sunny days. In autumn the views are just spectacular with the fall foliage. To avoid the crowds, visit the bridge early morning or late in the evening in the summer. Very few visitors in winter only.
Tip for photographers; The sunlight is best in the evening. The sunset is just gorgeous here.
