- Highest located bungee jump in the world!
- No greater thrill for daredevils
This is one of Europe’s great bungee jumps, and if you’re an aficionado of this extreme
sport, definitely one to tick off your list soon. What makes the Kölnbreinsperre jump so
special is that you are jumping from a crane (34 metres), that is already atop the highest
dam in Austria (131 metres), making this the world’s highest located bungee jump at 165
metres! It’s an absolute beast and not for the faint-hearted. Anyone that has seen the movie
Goldeneye can imagine the feeling of jumping from a dam and seeing the thick walls rush
past you, before the cord tightens and you spring back up.
Ever since organised bungee jumping was invented by AJ Hackett in New Zealand, it has
become known as a top extreme sport, about the most fun you can have on land. But the
Kiwis didn’t have it all their own way for long and now Europe has many incredible bungees
of its own. An important element of any good bungee is not just the height, but also the
setting - you want natural beauty and drama - the Kölnbrein Dam provides plenty of both. A
truly exhilarating bungee.
