A view of the street including the alleged world record sign.

Spreuerhofstraße is one of the world's narrowest streets on the earth. It is in Reutlingen, which is a city in Germany.[1] Its narrowest point is 31 centimetres (12.2 in). Its widest point is 50 centimetres (19.7 in).[2] The street was built in 1727. This happened while the city built itself again. That was necessary because a big fire destroyed the city in 1726. The street is officially listed in the Land-Registry Office as City Street Number 77.[1][3]
