The lookout point at the summit of Switzerland’s famous mountain Bürgenstock offers stunning panoramic views of the Alps, Lake Lucerne, and the city of Lucerne. But in order to reach the top of the 1,127 meters-tall peak, you have to hop into a more than hundred-year-old, rickety elevator called the Hammetschwand Lift, which also happens to be the tallest outdoor elevator in Europe. The lift whisks passengers up the face of the rocky cliff, making the 153 meters journey in just under a minute. If you survive the trip without attacks of vertigo, you’ll be able to exit at the top, and then cross a bridge that leads to the mountaintop.
