These cool staircases are works of art in their own right.

If traveling is all about the journey, why choose a stuffy elevator over the beautiful views only a staircase could offer?

Staircases aren’t just a means to get from Point A to Point B; they’re becoming works of art in their own right. Whether they lead to beauty, like the spiral staircase of The Louvre or to nothing, like the Tiger & Turtle installation in Germany, staircases can make your travel experiences just that much more memorable.

Check out some of the world’s coolest staircases below.
