It's a street and it's steep. You have to go here. It's like saying you've climbed up the world's highest mountain or swum with the world's deadliest sharks. People will be impressed you walked to the top, took some silly pictures and the biggest feat of all? You got back down, alive!

Its well worth visiting the Guiness Book of Records steepest street while you're in Dunedin. The climb takes around 20 minutes round trip and we got to meet some of the lovely locals who live on the street who seem to enjoy being hosts to a world-record holding attraction!

Always take visitors up here and they enjoy the fact they have walked the steepest street in the world. Did push a wheel chair up once but probably won't do that again.

A famous street -- especially for the near famous 25,000 Cadbury chocolate ball charity event in mid July!! Look it up!

Very steep. Was a struggle to get up but was very rewarding afterwards. Would not try if too unfit :)

Went to visit this street for the first time during the Cabarys Chocolate Festival & they roll Jaffas down the hill. It is very exciting & a lot of fun but far too many people. It is a good street to visit to take some awesome pics which will have people viewing yr photos, guessing!!! A must see before you... More

My partner Peter actually walked up and down and yes he did have sore legs for a day or so but unfit like myself. So steep but so neat. Great to do the walk.

Steepest road in the world even has small souvenir shop, not much to do once you get there but get a good leg work out

Whether you will enjoy this really depends on what you like. To me, this looks like a very steep walk up a not particularly nice street in a not particularly nice part of town. Yes, it is steep and, yes, you get a nice view over the valley and a bit beyond. You get to say you walked up what... More
