Designed in 1930 by Switzerland’s famous bridge designer, A. Sarrasin, the Visp or Stalden bridge crosses a magnificent gorge in the Valais region of Switzerland.  Three years later Sarrasin would create an even higher and more spectacular concrete arch bridge over the Trient gorge in nearby Gueuroz.

The New Visp is a concrete arch bridge similar in size and style to the original 1930 arch that was too narrow and inadequate to handle current traffic needs. Designed by Switzerland’s great bridge engineer A. Sarrasin, the older bridge was bypassed but left up for pedestrian use only.
