Welcome to Saint Paul’s Pedestrian Skyway System

Downtown Saint Paul boasts a fully enclosed and temperature-controlled skyway system that covers 47 city blocks and spans five miles making it one of the largest in the world.  The system connects pedestrians to or close to many of Saint Paul's best attractions and award-winning restaurants as well as the Xcel Energy Center and close to CHS Field in Lowertown. Use the skyway system to explore downtown and look for access points to and from the street level.
