Probably the most touristic site in Rio. Gives a great view of the city and the ride in the train going up and down the hill is very much fun.

This is one of the highlights of Rio in all the travel guide books. It is very interesting and amazing. Plan your visit with a lot of time to enjoy.

Off the plane at 7 am and at the monument by 1 pm which was shrouded in mist and invisible. Despite recommendation not to ascend the mountain because of the poor visibility of the statue, I made the trek. The weather changed and the views were amazing. The crowd was thinned out and tons of photo opportunities were available. This... More

We visited the monument early morning on an overcast day. The views are still fantastic. We saw monkeys at the halfway point - an added bonus! The crowds started to swell whilst we we're there which is expected at such an iconic venue - a tad touristy but hey that's what we were. The gift shop sell Chinese product so... More

You didn't fly to Rio to ignore Christ the Redeemer did you?? Take the train, it's an adventure. The area of the statue itself is busy, so be prepared for that and don't forget to take the required picture with your arms spread wide.... ;-)

We visited Christ the Redeemer on 20 September 2014. The train is nice way to travel up mountain but waiting in line takes a long time, even out of peek times. Prepare to have long queue at top waiting to go down.

If you want a very nice view of Rio, this a good place, take into account that this is where the Christ the Redemptor is, so it will be crowded and you'll have to pay about 50 BRL to take the train. Besides, there are long lines to get up there ( probably hours)

We went there during the WorldCup season and it takes us one whole day to get up to Christ the Redeemer. The park is not ready for this big swamp of soccer fans. We were not able to get tickets on the train, and end up spending 5 hours in line for the bus ride. But once we reach the... More

We took a van service from Copacabana Beach and it was well worth it. We didn't have to deal with a taxi to the gate and then transfers. The van took us up to the top and then a e walked up to the platform. It is definitely something not to miss! It has amazing views of the city.

When you reach the top of the statue, this gigantic Christ the Redeemer with his arms opened " blessing" Rio de Janeiro... is just too beautiful ! You can go by car or take the little train that goes through the " forest" with samba players amusing you during the ride !! Once at the top,you can take an elevator... More
