The recent heatwave in Switzerland has called for fire restrictions to be put in place so there will be fewer fireworks but there are still lots of activities happening, including the chance to walk across the new Cliff Walk. The 260m-long suspension bridge close to the Grindelwald-First summit station in the Bernese Oberland will open on Swiss National Day where visitors can walk between the peaks and get incredible valley views.
