If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit Germany, it really is worth the trip. There are so many different things to see and do, including trying to walk down the world’s narrowest street.

That street, named Spreuerhofstrasse, truly lives up to its name. It has even made its way into the Guinness World Records, which is no surprise. After all, the narrowest point of the passageway being only a little more than a foot wide.

You will have to travel to the German city of Reutlingen to find this narrow street. There is an alleyway that connects the roads Mauerstrasse and Metzgerstrasse, and that is where you’ll find it.

The path is municipal property, although it is a public street and you’ll find it between two buildings.

At its widest point, the street is 1.64 feet across. On average, it is only 1.31 feet across.

For those who would like to try to wander down the street, you might want to diet first. The street is also a little on the short side, so if you are less than 5.9 feet tall, you may not make it. It is 65 feet from one end to the other.

When a fire broke out in the city in 1726, the passageway was part of the reconstruction the following year.

In 1820, it became a public street, and in 2007, it was given official recognition in the Guinness Book Of World Records.
