As part of the master plan 2013 - 2017, a new cliff pathway will be built next to the mid- station Birg. This leads from the Birg terrace down to the vertical walls of the imposing
rock massif. The 200-meter-long steel structured design clings to the rocks and then swings under the observation deck and below the cable car station. The cliff path will
include a variety of sections, an interplay of air, glass and grating. About 20 meters on a glass-bottom floor followed by 10 meters over cattle grid type of flooring. There is also an 8-meter Nepal bridge and an 8-meter-long crawling area for children planned. "The THRILL WALK will provide our guests with an even more intense mountain experience," promises Christoph Egger, director of Schilthornbahn AG.

Planning on track
The plans have been on public display, no complaints were formally submitted and the time
to lodge objections expired mid-January. "We assume that the building permit will be issued
in the coming weeks.“ said Egger. The plan is to start drilling on Birg after Easter, it is
expected to last throughout April. In May, follows the assembly of the support structure. In
June, the floors, railings and adventure elements are to be installed. "Our goal is to open the
new mountain experience THRILL WALK 2016 in time for the summer holidays." Christoph
A model of the crawl-through tunnel for kids on THRILL WALK cliff path on Birg is being tested. It will be even more exciting when there is a 250 metre drop below.
