Geierlay

Geierlay

the most beautiful suspension bridge in Germany is the Geierlay.

At the end of 2015 the Geierlay was opened as the longest suspension bridge in Germany. By the end of 2017, more than 600,000 guests have visited it. 360 meters in length and over 100 meters above the ground speak for themselves. The transition is free. A great idea and implementation of the people of Mörsdorf, Chapeau! A friend asked me once what "lay" means. I often use this word on my webpage. The word comes from Celtic and is used in our region as the name for slate or rock. Because middle German was spoken in our region (also in Luxembourg), the word "Geier" could stand for a bird/vulture or greedy people, which is still widespread today in the language jargon. The visit is free, so on to Geierlay.
