Deepest:
Elbetunnel Hamburg, 28m below the Elbe river -> ca. 25m below sealevel

Highest:
Mount Etna, Sicily, ca. 2050m above sealevel (just a bit higher than the station "Rifugio Sapienza"). I didn't climb as high as I could due to lack of time.


Is the Wieliczka Saltmine really 327m below sealevel? Or just below the local surface?
