Alpine Abyss: 'Stairway to Nothingness' Opens in Austria
An Austrian resort opened a new attraction for andrenaline junkies on Wednesday. The suspension bridge and glass platform offer spectacular views of the Alps, but at such dizzying heights that only the bravest are likely to test their mettle.
Anyone with a fear of heights should steer clear of a new attraction on the Dachstein Massif, an Alpine peak in Austria.
Their reward, however, is the "pure freedom" of hovering above a 400-meter (1,300-foot) drop while taking in the spectacular landscape of the Austrian Alps.
The 100-meter-long bridge, which opened on Wednesday after six months of construction, is the highest in Austria, according to the resort.
