The 525 metre long Sunniberg bridge, with a bowed radius of 500 metres, is a late work of the great bridge builder Christian Menn. The bridge is part of the local Klosters bypass and has been acclaimed and honoured around the world. The Sunniberg bridge is a so-called cable-stayed bridge and consists of four pillars that bow slightly outwards - a global innovation. Usually, the carriageway on a cable bridge is suspended far below the tips of the pylons, on a steep radial cable bearing. Here, it lies sixty metres high, in the upper quarter of the pillars. The unusual combination of the high-lying carriageway and flat guided cables makes the structure graceful and transparent: Merely a slender line cuts through the landscape.
