It’s a well-known fact that Instagrammers go crazy for a glammed up spiral staircase. To most, these old beauties just look like any other roller coaster, with clean curves and boring loops. To hell with them, we say. Staircases aren’t just fundamental structures that get us from A to B, they showcase several artistic, architectural and cultural perspectives on countless destinations. Whether they are in museums, shops or in the great outdoors, these 23 fantabulous staircases we’ve uncovered are some of the most inspiring works of public art in the world.

So next time you’re exploring a cool art gallery or sipping a glass of champs in a swanky hotel, skip the mundane elevator and opt for the stairs. We guarantee you’ll be so awestruck, you won’t even notice you’re working up a sweat.
