If you’re going to do something you’re going to want to do it right.
Well then, there is no reason to go bungee jumping and have it only be from a couple hundred feet in the air.
You want to feel the rush, the air in your face, and the weightlessness of falling towards the earth.
The best way to achieve all that is to jump from the highest bungees you can find.
Below is a list of the highest bungee jumps in Europe.
None of these jumps are less than 490 ft(149 meters) from the ground.
The way bungee was intended.

Leave it up to Switzerland to be the highest bungee in Europe(and 3rd highest in the world).

Since then thrillseekers have been racing here to throw themselves from this gigantic dam.
