The breath-taking flat-topped cliff, 25km outside Stavanger, is ranked higher than the Grand Canyon Sky Walk in the US, despite leaving its viewing platform entirely to nature.
It also beat the Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand and Knife-edge point at Victoria Falls in Zambia.
"While glass floors and skyscrapers can be impressive, in Norway it’s a mighty lump of stone that offers the best outlook," Lonely Planet wrote justifying its choice.
"This summit seems built for purpose: its almost perfectly flat top juts out over the water (no safety barriers here), commanding uninterrupted if vertiginous views."
It is now possible to visit the spectacular cliff from home, as Google Maps has recently put Pulpit Rock on Street View, see our previous story here.
You can also inspect the view using Visit Norway's dizzying 360 degree panorama site.
