Since 2013, the 82-meter suspension bridge connects the hamlet of Burgstein with the Brandalm high above Längenfeld. The filigree steel construction gives 150m deep views into the Maurer gutter.From the start in Unterlängenfeld at the Fischbach bridge follow the steadily rising forest path to the Brandalm. From the high plateau you can enjoy a magnificent view of the valley. On the hiking trail towards Burgstein you can catch a glimpse into the valley as well. The highlight is the crossing of the suspension bridge. So that the 4-legged friend follows the master, engineers have covered the ground with a sight-tight dog track. Now it is only a few minutes walk to the hamlet Burgstein. From here a forest path (old Burgsteiner road) leads back to Längenfeld. The last piece back to the starting point leads along the main road.
