2002 saw the opening of an exceedingly popular bungee station on the bridge locally known as Europabrücke. It stands proudly at a height of 192 metres (629 feet) and is internationally known as Europe Bridge.
On October 3, 1993, Rupert Hirner dared to do the first ever bungee jump from this impressive spot! Five years later in September 1998, the first official bungee jumps were allowed from the bridge. This progressively led to a week of bungee being permitted, which went onto two weeks and before you knew it, you could bungee jump from Europe Bridge all year round!
Since then thousands of bungee jumpers have taken that step into the void from one of the most spectacular and tremendous bungee stations in the world! Rupert and his team of trusty guides are looking forward to encouraging you when you’re ‘on the edge’ right before you JUMP!
Innsbruck is renowned for its imposing bridge, Europabrücke from where the bungee jumps take place. It is one of the highest and most remarkable places to bungee jump from, rendering bungee more than an adventure above the ground. It’s the perfect and unique tool to conquer your fears and enter a new way of life with more self-confidence.
The exhilarating sport of bungee jumping is becoming increasingly popular in Tyrol, due to Europe Bridge’s height and the surrounding location, making the spot the perfect backdrop for bungee jump.
When you jump you will reach the speed of 100 km/h in two seconds and a total of 120 kph/74.6 mph. The flying time is 5 seconds. When you fall, the bungee cord will accelerate you back until you will feel absolutely weightless, just before you fall again!
A video recording of you jump can be purchased on site for 29 euros.
