Stairway to Nothingness

This is perhaps the most aptly named scenic overlook on our list. Located in the Austrian Alps, the "Stairway to Nothingness" stops abruptly after leading people out over the edge of a cliff. The drop to the glacier below is about 1,400 feet. Panes of glass are the only thing between the views and the viewer.
