India - open spiral stair. I'm not afraid of heights but what happens if you slip...this makes me so nervous!
My artificial knee is way to wobbly to even think about "no railing".

Melk Abbey staircase...it's amazing. Check out my "places I've been album" for another shot of this staircase...the colors are pink and gold...amazing!
Cat, thanks for the name! Unfortunately image blogs like the one where I found this picture don't come with captions or credits.
I got to go last Spring and all I can say is WOW! The entire Abbey is simply stunning! It's on the banks of the Danube up on a hill and you can see the entire town from the back balcony, the hills, and the river. Stunning place and this staircase was the most incredible I saw on our trip!
great spiral stairs and great cardio workout
