List of highest points of European countries
This article lists the highest natural elevation of each sovereign state on the continent of Europe defined physiographically. States sometimes associated with Europe politically and culturally, but not geographically part of Europe, are not included in this list of physical features (with the exception of Armenia, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and Turkey - marked with a N/A rank entry).
Not all points in this list are mountains or hills, some are simply elevations that are not distinguishable as geographical features.
Notes are provided where territorial disputes or inconsistencies affect the listings. Some countries such as Denmark (Greenland), Netherlands (Saba), Spain (Canary Islands), Portugal (Azores Islands), and Turkey (Ararat) have part of their territory and their high points outside of Europe; their non-European high points are mentioned in the Notes.
Three other entries of partially recognized countries with highest points in Europe are listed and ranked in italics. For more details see list of states with limited recognition.
