Apparently, stunning views of one of the most picturesque mountain ranges in the world aren't enough for visitors of the Dachstein Glacier resort in Austria. So the facility has installed a 14-step 'staircase to nothing' leading to a glass-bottomed viewing platform that juts out from the side of the glacier, and a 328-foot suspension bridge that hangs 1,300 feet over the mountains.


Although awe-inspiring, neither attraction is designed for the faint of heart. However, if you've ever dreamed of scaling a mountain but barely have enough upper body strength to put on a warm jacket, this is the closest you'll get to the stunning views enjoyed by mountaineers—unless they eventually install a staircase on Everest.
