    Its Amazing Breathtaking Viewing Platforms Around The World


    Nicknamed the ‘balcony of the alps‘, the Dachstein Sky Walk is formally enthroned at 2,700 m above sea-level, high up on the 250 m vertical rock face of the Hunerkogel.
    A 360 degree panorama allows the visitor a view of Slovenia in the south to the Czech Republic in the north. This “balcony of the Alps” is distinctly higher than the platforms of the Niagara Falls or the Iguazu waterfalls in Brasil.

    The Landscape Promontory





    The landscape promontory is a suspended viewing platform designed by paolo bürgi as part of the cardada project, a revitalisation of the cardada mountain that is expected to finish in 2010. as with ‘il binocolo’, the steel and titanium platform enables you to walk amongst the tree tops and experience a view of lake maggiore that was previously unattainable.

    Grand Canyon Skywalk




    The Skywalk extends 65ft beyond the edge of the Grand Canyon and offers an unprecedented view from 4,000 ft above the ground!

    The Horseshoe shaped skywalk is constructed of glass walls 4 inches thick and visitors must don special scratch-proof socks as they partake in the view.

    The work is a true engineering feat that can hold up to 70 tons (roughly 14 African Elephants) and withstands winds of 100mph.

    Top of tyrol




    Innsbruck-based architects Astearchitecture have completed a mountain-top viewing platform located on 3200m at the Stubai Glacier in Tyrol, Austria.The same view could’ve been gained without the steel platform but it definitely provides a decievingly safe area for tourists wanting a perfect view of stubai glacier. plus there’s always the attraction of the thrill factor as you stand 9 metres away from the mountain.

    Aurland Lookout



    Architects Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen were commissioned to design a scenic rest-stop 2′000ft above aurland fjord in norway and came up with this beauty. the outermost end of the horizontal platform – which curves to form the structure’s support – is closed off by a sheet of glass, offering an incredible view towards the ground for all those with the balls to make the trip to the end.
