We visited here a second time with friends and were fortunate to have a wonderful view of the city from the top on a clear early evening. It's really worth the money given the very low fare. Try to get into the front cab on the way down if you can (it's also where the bikes and buggies go) as... More

I think the funicular was .75 euro each way…it was great. Nice view and had a great lunch at the top. Amazing vantage point and the day we were there was beautiful weather.

The funicular climbs up to the top of the Artxanda Mountain which features a park giving amazing views of the city. It costs less than one euro per journey and the journey lasts about 3 minutes. You can take beautiful pictures of Bilbao from the top.

Just to get an overview of this restructured city it is worth paying the 3.80 euros to rise above the city and see the river winding through this rejuvinated city.

This funicular is near the estuary at the base and and easy ride to a beautiful park with spectacular views of the city and the environs. Lots of locals enjoying picnics, views, and the slightly cooler temperatures. The restaurant up top is a bit pricey, but the food is very good and one of the few places open on Monday.

The price and location of the funicular made it well worth the trip to the top. It is located not too far from some of the other attractions we visited. From the top you have a good view of the city. The day we went wasn't perfectly clear, but it was still enjoyable to sit on a bench at the... More

Unfortunately the day we visited was wet and windy so we did not get to see the great views of the city. However we could see enough to know that it would have been great.

Is there a cheaper public transport system to get to a panoramic view and a lovely Park anywhere else in Europe. As we say in Ireland," I doubt it says Croker".
