Definitely worth the trip for the view....there are pleasant walks when you get to the top and a few cafes for that much needed drink. Just had a drink in the sunshine, didnt eat in any of them. The ride is good value and would be interesting for children if you are travelling as a family.

Short train ride up the hill will give you a nice overview of Bilbao and gives you a glimbs of the ocean.

Go, do this. The ride up is great and beautiful. We did this on a very overcast day then on a sunny day both days gave different perspective on the views.

Very good and quite windy view of Bilbao; some interesting structures on top. Funicular itself is not that spectacular.

For an excellent view of the city and an opportunity to see the nature surrounding bilbao this is a great place to be. Lots of places to sit and relax. Worth the small cost

Good views of the city. Have a drink and something to eat at the top. The weather was a bit dull when we went but still a good experience.

A mere 50 cents or so gets you out of the heat, to a superb view and a nice relaxing area. Recommended!

It's is a great way to get up and down to the city from mount artanda. At less than a euro it certainly beats driving or bus!
