The view from this rooftop deck in Murren, Switzerland is unbeatable.

What's your view right now? It's probably something to the effect of: Your desk, your paperwork, your coworker who won't stop listening to death metal, your office window that looks out onto the parking lot.

The list goes on, however uninspiring. But what if you could get a different view -- one that was not only far, far, away from your work, but also absolutely beautiful?

Take a break from your regular view for a second to admire these: From all over the world, of all different scenes, these views will blow your mind. Explore the creaky bridges of Russia, to the vast expanse of the Sonoma Valley, to the unbelievable cityscapes of Dubai. Let yourself be transported to another place -- at least until this list is over and it's time to get back to work.
