RANDA, SWITZERLAND (CNN) - The world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge is now open to the public.

It's located in Switzerland and is more than 1,600 feet long.

The bridge is only 2 feet wide, and took just 10 weeks to build.

It replaces one that was shut down in 2010 due to unstable terrain and rock falls.

The bridge also completes a section of the "Europaweg" trail, which offers views of some of Switzerland's highest peaks.
