If you’re going to do something crazy you’re going to want to do it right.
Am I Right?
Well then, there is no reason to go bungee jumping and have it only be from a couple hundred feet in the air.
Go Big or Go Home!
You want to feel the adrenaline pumping, the rush of 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.
HIGHEST BUNGEE JUMPS IN EUROPE.
1. Contra Dam(Verzasca Dam).
Height: 721 ft(220 meters).
Location: Ticine, Switzerland.
Leave it up to Switzerland to have the highest bungee in Europe(and 3rd highest in the world).
This bungee jump became famous after the opening scene in the James Bond movie Goldeneye.
Since then, thrill seekers have raced here to throw themselves from this gigantic dam.
2. Europabrucke Bridge.
Height: 630 ft(192 meters).
Location: Innsbruck, Austria.
This is the 7th highest bridge in Europe.
Spanning the Sill River on the route across the Austrian Alps and South Tyrol, Italy.
3. Niouc Bridge.
Height: 623 ft(190 meters).
Location: Val d’ Anniviers(Valais), Switzerland.
Switzerland is back on the list again.
This time with the highest jump from a European suspension bridge.
4. Valgadena Bridge.
Height: 574 ft(175 meters).
Location: Altopiano di Asiago, Vicenza, Italy.
This jump is the highest jump that allows tandem bungee.
So if you have a friend that might chicken out you can always have them attached to you to make sure they jump.
5. Kolnbrein Dam.
Height: 555 ft(169 meters).
Location: Carinthia, Austria.
Austria is back on the list again trying to compete with Switzerland.
This time they have a crane jump from atop the tallest dam in Austria.
Also operated from the same company that does the jump in Innsbruck.
6. Vidraru Dam.
Height: 545 ft(166 meters).
Location: Curtea de Arges, Romania.
Honestly I don’t know if jumps still operate from here.
Information on who organizes jumps here is a little hard to find, so Good Luck.
ITALY & AUSTRIA(tied):
Italy and Austria join the list once again as they are both tied for having jumps at 498 ft(152 meters).
7. Veglio-Pistolesa Bridge.
Height: 498 ft(152 meters).
Location: Biella, Italy.
This site gives you the option of doing a 2nd jump the same day for €30 less than the 1st jump.
Two jumps from these guys still costs less than some of the other companies single jumps.
If you’re looking to do multiple jumps this is the place to go.
8. Danube Tower.
Height: 498 ft(152 meters).
Location: Vienna, Austria.
This is the 2nd highest Tower jump behind the monstrous Macau Tower in Macau, China(764 ft/233 meters).
This bungee is certainly a great way to see the Vienna skyline while visiting the city.
9. Crane Jump.
Height: 492 ft(150 meters).
Location: Kaivopuisto, Helsinki, Finland.
If you’d like to do this jump in Helsinki it’s only around for a limited time.
It’s usually open from July 20th to August 12th.
So make sure to plan in advance.
Take The Leap.
That’s a pretty intimidating list of the highest bungee jumps in Europe.
As you can see, if you’re looking for an adrenaline racing time The Alps are where it’s at.
Switzerland, Austria, and Italy have your Earth Plummeting Adventures waiting for you.
