Neighborhood: Charlotte Amalie

Between Hotel 1829 and Government House sits the foot of the famed, steep 99 Steps, a staircase built in the 1700s by the Danes to connect parts of the town. Ironically, there are actually 103 steps, all made of ballast bricks from Danish ships. They lead high to a hill above Charlotte Amalie and the stone remains of an old tower, now part of the Inn at Blackbeard's Castle complex. It is a huff and puff to the top, but well worth it for the view. There is no admission charge.
