All reviews steepest street in the world walk up water fountain guinness book of records steep road coming down bucket list worth the effort worth the climb souvenir shop taking photos great fun take your time worth a visit visiting dunedin new zealand certificate
Peculiar street.. spellbound by how steep the street is and imagined the residents staying in the house flanking the street if not using their cars to go up and down.. walking is not an easy deal. nice place to really see it yourself!
We were exhausted from traveling all over the island, BUT we couldn't pass up a chance to climb the steepest street in the world! We weren't even sure if we would make it to the top, but we persevered, we are so glad we did!

With a 35% gradient it really is very steep. Certainly wouldn't want to walk up and down that...More
