I have set myself a major task in picking the 31 things to do in Europe before you die.

31 doesn’t even allow for one item per country, but I have thought about each one and whittled them down as best I can.

From incredible landscapes to culture packed cities, historical attractions to modern wonders, adventures and gentle pursuits, here are 31 things to do in Europe before you die.

1. Take a Trip on the London Eye in England

Take a Trip on the London Eye in England

It seems only logical to choose the first of my things to do in Europe before you die from my own country.

London is a fabulous place to visit and a trip on the Eye on the South Bank provides the best views of the city.

On a clear day you can see for miles across the capital, taking in the River Thames, the iconic historical landmarks of Big Ben, St.

Paul's, and Westminster Abbey, as well as modern features like the Gherkin, Canary Wharf and the Shard.

The Shard, the UK’s tallest building, also offers fabulous 360 degree views but of course, not of itself.

2. Drive Germany’s Romantic Road

Drive Germany’s Romantic Road

Running from Würzburg to Füssen, this is one of 2 fabulous road trips to be had in Germany.

(The other follows the story of the Grimm fairytales.) The Romantic Road passes through gorgeous countryside and dozens of quaint medieval towns and villages full of history and rich in culture.

The highlight of the trip for many is the Neuschwanstein Castle.

Commissioned by the reclusive and eccentric King Ludwig II, if ever there was a castle to be described as fairytale, it is this one.

3. See the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, Denmark

Are you familiar with The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Princess and the Pea and Thumbelina?

The writer of these beloved kids stories is Hans Christian Anderson.

The statue of the Little Mermaid sits in Copenhagen honoring the storyteller, and is just one reason why the Danish capital is one of the places to visit in Europe before you die.
