Europe is very much into social spending, so financially Democrats would be considered center or right-wing. Nobody batted an eye when a far-right party proposed government-issued coupons for cultural institutions and events. You would get some coupons, enter cultural events, museums, etc. by redeeming the coupons and then the institutions would get paid by the government based on amount of redeemed coupons.

But things like immigration, gay marriage, abortion, etc. are not so obvious and vary across Europe. In one country, only far right would oppose gay marriage, while in another country, center parties see no pressing reason to legalize it. In one country, only far right would stop immigrants from entering, in another country only the left would let them in.

Other topics like guns, drugs, surveillance or freedom of speech are even more surprising for Americans. You might have right-wing parties that try to ban guns and left-wing parties that support gun ownership.
