But, is there a Juancho E Yraunsquin in Norway ? because this name is the Dutch airport in Caribbean island of Saba not in Europe.

 

With tubeliners or prop ?

 

For Prop

Courchevel

LIRJ RWY 16

I think Vágar at faroe islands also should be added to the list. Especially Runway 12 during which approach you fly through a narrow fjord canyon.

Going off memory so correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Gibraltar (LXGB) have a fairly tricky approach for one of it's runways?

 

(I don't think anyone has mentioned it yet).

Great topic! Not Europe, but possibly the most difficult in the world is Paro, Bhutan. According to a documentary I watched recently (BBC City in the Sky), only 26 commercial pilots are qualified to make the landing.
