You are correct that TerraServer doesn't work outside the U.S.  Many
other online mapping services are available  (e.g. Google, Yahoo,, etc.) which do cover Europe.  All of these can be
accessed from Mathematica (I've used each, though Google's terms of
service are not as generous as the others) with varying degrees of
difficulty.  Here's a quick example for Yahoo:

url=Cases[xml,XMLElement["Result", _, {str_String}]:>str,Infinity];
