If a fear of heights plagues you, this may not be the vacation destination for you.
Switzerland houses Europe's tallest outdoor elevator and just looking at the photos of this 152 meter structure could give you a nosebleed. The Hammetschwand Lift connects the lookout point on the Bürgenstock mountain to the path below and the trip up to the top is made in less than a minute. Once you're at the top, you'll have magnificent views of Lake Lucerne.
