Located atop beautiful Corcovado, the Christ statue is a definite must-see when in Rio! I highly recommend taking the tram from Cosme Velho, and purchasing the ticket online prior to your visit. Also, several buses pass the location providing lots of transportation options.

Wonderful, the view of the city of Rio de Janeiro since this place is impressive. Without doubt, one of the icons more important city. A rainy day we went and with clouds still enjoyed the views and took good photos. You raise a very comfortable lightweight train through. The statue of Christ is imposing with its lines soft and elegant... More

Everything about this attraction is said in the other reviews and if you want to see one of Rios' top sights you need to go there. Just wanted to add my personal hint for foreign visitors: There is four ways going up: - by foot (although on the narrow road with aggressive bus drivers) - by car (long parking queues... More

Easily the most iconic image in Rio de Janeiro if not all of Brazil, the Christ the Redeemer statue on top of Corcovado celebrates its 84th birthday this year. There are a number of ways to visit including riding the narrow-gauge train, taking a van, and absorbing the views in the air by helicopter. I chose an early morning visit... More

A must see, but be prepared for long waits for the train up and down. And mostly for the crowds esp. with selfie sticks. Our family thought we would be getting there early, but our 10 minute taxi ride took over an hour due to morning traffic.

This is one of these places you have to visite - so we went up. Unfortunately we saw almost nothing because of for around the summit. Real, thick fog - we were at the base of the statue and at times we couldn't see the head. Of cause there was no view of the city whatsoever. Still it was kind... More

well organized access to Corcovado. carry your own bottle of water. the vans sometimes take long and lines can be long. we were lucky to have an excellent day and no queues at all.

If you ever visit Rio the Corcovado is an absolute must! Better go early and avoid the rush otherwise you might fee squashed in the mass of people.

Just as spectacular as you expect. We went early to avoid the worst of the crowds and enjoyed the views. The size of the statue is hard to appreciate without actually being there.

We were aiming to get to the top for sunset, we arrived with a few hours to spare, after 2 hours waiting to buy a ticket (after paying for a transfer to the base) we then re queued for a further 90 minutes to wait for a van to complete the journey to the top, by which point it was... More
