German city with a narrowest street in the world

World’s narrowest street is located in Reutlingen, Germany – it ranges from 31 centimetres (12.2 in) at its narrowest to 50 centimetres (19.7 in) at its widest point.

When you hear a term “narrow street” you probably imagine one where two cars could never pass each other. But this is far from the dimensions of Spreuerhofstraße in Reutlingen.

The lane was built in 1727 during the reconstruction of this area of Reutlingen which was almost completely destroyed by the massive city-wide fire in 1726.

Nowadays, Spreuerhofstraße is officially listed as City Street Number 77 in the Land-Registry Office.
