There is no definite list for the highest points in every country in Europe. Several geographic and politic borders cut through our lovely tumble of small states, while I have to decide which interpretation to accept.

Just a few small examples:

Russia and Turkey are both Eurasian states, so are they European, Asian, or both?

The highest peak of Spain is on the Canares, which are generally considered to be African islands, at least geographically.

The Danish government is de-facto also the government of Greenland. Does this mean that the highest Danish mountain is on Greenland too?

All in all I have at least 47 peaks I want to climb, with several optional ones. There will be a blog post with a description of the climb and photos from the top for each.
