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.

It was really worth visiting. Once you arrive to Attxanda you have a chance to see wonderful view over the city of Bilbao.

The funicular climbs up the very steep side 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.

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".

The entrance is difficult to find in the maze of streets and is an imposing hole in the rock...very utilitarian. The trip was really good value on a couple of Euros for 3 of us. At the top you get great views of the city and there is a nice park to sit and relax in. We had the most... More

Really worthwhile trip as you get the most amazing views of the city and the surrounding countryside. There is a lovely park at the top and some restaurants if you wanted (we did not try them so cannot comment on how good they are!)

It's worth going up there! It costs a few cents only, the 5 min ride to the top is interesting in itself, and the top of the hill is a pleasant surprise: peaceful, invites to rest and look, and offers a great view of the city!
