If you prefer a bird’s eye view of the destination you are visiting then here are some of the highest points in Europe to visit. Watch your step!
Standing at 4,810.44 metres high, Mont Blanc (also known as the roof of Europe) is the tallest mountain in Europe, towering over the rest of the Alps. If you’re going to climb it make sure that you plan in plenty of time in advance, which will involve speaking to the High Mountain Office.
The Shard, London
Standing at a colossal 309 metres high, The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe. It was almost exactly two years today that the building opened its doors to visitors. Now everyone can enjoy panoramic views of London of up to 40 miles on a clear day.
Titlis Cliff Walk, Switzerland
The Titlis Cliff Walk has a reputation of being the world’s scariest (and maybe highest) suspension bridge. It hangs (and probably wobbles) 3,000 metres above sea level and offers stunning views of Mount Titlis. Don’t worry, it is perfectly safe though, as it did cost almost £1million to build!
