Baldwin Street, in a quiet suburban part of New Zealand’s southern city of Dunedin, is reputed to be the world’s steepest street. It is located in the suburb of North East Valley, 3.5 kilometres northeast of Dunedin’s city centre.

The steepest street in the world is Baldwin Street, located in Dunedin, Southern New Zealand. It starts with a moderate slope but increases rapidly until it reaches a staggering 19 degrees incline! That may not sound like alot, but check out the pics below and you’ll understand how steep this baby actually is. Funny thing is, it is so steep that the surface has to be laid with concrete instead of asphalt otherwise the tar will start flowing down the street on a hot day! Anyone with a death wish can try blading or skateboarding down….

A short straight street of some 350 metres length, Baldwin Street runs east from the valley of the Lindsay Creek up the side of Signal Hill. Its lower reaches are of only moderate steepness, and the surface is asphalt, but the upper reaches of this cul-de-sac are far steeper, and surfaced in concrete, for ease of maintenance (tar seal would flow down the slope on a warm day) and for safety in Dunedin’s frosty winters. At its maximum, the slope of Baldwin Street is approximately 1:2.86 (19° or 35%) - that is, for every 2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the elevation rises by 1 metre.
