Great views

Best to go up on a bright and sunny day to take advantage of the great views. There's a small park and a nice atmosphere

This is a must do at bilbao! Just 0.95€ per person to travel up to the top, and not even a 3 minute trip, for a really incredible view over Bilbao. There is also a fingerprint sculpture at the top.

Fabulous views of the city. A nice park if the weather is suitable but it was raining when we were there!

We came here in March and it was raining and cloudy so could not see any views , however it was worthwhile as it is a huge Funicular ride to the top of the mountain .

This funicular is vital if you want to go up to the mountain to see the city views! It is very cheap and runs frequently.

The best views of Bilbao all the way up and from Artxanda hill. Very inexpensive and worth it. Feels like the old days in there.

A secret attraction of Bilbao. You start from a veruy convenient location, halfway between the Guggenheim and the Casco Viejo, an enjoyable ride up the hill (Artxanda), beautiful views from the top and nice restaurants in Artxanda. Do not hesitate to do it with good weather. With bad weather, though, do someting else; maybe check at the fine arts museum.

Well worth a trip up the Funicular, beautiful views on a clear day. Bring a picnic basket and chill out on the grass to escape for a while!!

Last time a made a mistake by confusing this attraction with a restaurant. Well, I am living since more than 10 years at Bilbao, however I still enjoy this attraction several times a year. First of all, you can use the funicular at the general rate of public transport, which is very reasonable. Than you have a perfect view over... More
