Take a look at these thrilling viewing platforms in the Alps . . . 

Titlis Cliff Walk, Engelberg: Take a heart-pounding walk across Europe's highest suspension bridge (3,041m). This narrow walkway (3ft wide) spns a glacial abyss in the Swiss Alps. It's a 500m drop so don't look down!

Step Into The Void, Chamonix: Step into the glass case with 1000m of nothingness beneath your feet - this is not for the faint-hearted. On the summit terrace of the Aiguille du Midi, in the French Alps, this glass box installation opened to the public December 2013.
