The Steepest Street In The World Is Located In New Zealand

By -

New Zealand’s residential Baldwin Street located in Dunedin city is known as the world’s steepest street, and if there was any street steeper than this then it would have been a wall.

Urban Designers from London planned the city using a grid system, which was placed on top of the map without the consideration of the actual topography. Due to this, a number of streets were built on extremely steep hills without even scaling down the steepness.

Baldwin Street ended up being the steepest part of the city hence earning Guinness World Record for the steepest street in the world.  The residents celebrate the title each year through multiple charity events such as a fun run to promote fitness where people run up and down some 1000 ft. of the street. Another event includes a spherical, red-coated chocolate candy which bounce down the street in a distance race.

Check out the images of the residents living on the steepest street of the world:
