Best places to Bungee Jump in Europe

Although you might associate bungee jumping with places like Australia and New Zealand, there are loads of great opportunities to try out this daredevil activity closer to home. Here, we share some of the best places to bungee jump in Europe – read on if you dare!

Europabrucke Bridge – Innsbruck, Austria

Named as the 7th highest bridge in Europe the Europabrucke Bridge (or Bridge of Europe) is the perfect place to bungee jump from if you’ve got a good head for heights! The jump itself takes place from 192m up, and you’ll dive into the valley below. The first jump from the Europabrucke Bridge took place in 1993, but it wasn’t until 1998 that it became an official bungee site. Since then, thousands of people have braved the jump, and you can follow in their footsteps between May and October each year.

Valgadena Bridge – Vicenza, Italy

As Italy’s highest bridge, the Valgadena Bridge is the perfect bungee jump location if you’re visiting this beautiful country. Set in stunning surroundings, you’ll leap from the bridge 175m from the ground and will feel the first rebound at 120m. The jump includes 40m of free flight, which is guaranteed to get your adrenaline going! Valgadena Bridge is also the highest bridge in Europe offering a tandem job (providing your combined weight is below 100kg). This is ideal if you think you might need a bit of encouragement to get you over the edge!

Contra Dam (Verzasca Dam) - Ticine, Switzerland

Unleash your inner James Bond by jumping from Contra Dam in Switzerland. This was the spot from which 007 completed the ‘best film stunt of all time’ in Goldeneye, and has been attracting visitors ever since. This bungee jump takes place from 220m up, making it the 3rd highest bungee jump in the world and the highest one you can complete from solid ground! Enjoy Alpine views as you complete one of a number of jumps (depending on your experience) including a classic jump, back jump, and night jump.
