The Baldwin Street (World's Steepest Street), Dunedin, New Zealand

In Dunedin, New Zealand, there is a street, the Baldwin Street which run into the hill. It is located at the outskirt of Dunedin. It is the steepest street in the world. The angle is more than 45 degrees. On side of the road, there is staircases which you can climb. There are many bungalows on this hill.

At the foothill of the road. The sign board is telling that this road is the world's steepest street.

A view from the top of the street. Note that the houses are constructed at the very steep slope.

The steepness is real. When you walk down the road, be careful with your knee.

The staircases are provided for the visitors or residents to walk up the hill.

Those who are interested to experience this climb to the steepest street, you can take a cab to this part of Dunedin. It is just a few kilometres from Dunedin city centre. At the foothills, there is a sundry shop where you can buy souvenirs and of course a certificate with your name being written on it at a small fee. Happy travel.
