Really steep 5 minute ride in the funicular train to the amazing panaromic view over the city. Only .95euro each way.

The trip is about five minutes to a hill where you can see the city. It costs less than 1 euro per person per ride.

For the best views on town and specially on the Guggenheim take this special train on the hill. It is worth the visit.

This is a great and inexpensive way to see Bilbao. At less than a Euro each way, the funicular drops you off in a pleasant park with magnificent views of the city. Worth the round trip.

The funicular allows you to move from Bilbao city to Artxanda Mountain in a few minutes. The main goal is to have the best views of Bilbao and its river. On the top you can find great places to eat and a big park to walk. You can't forget to visit it.

Lovely views from the top. Worth a trip to get an overview of Bilbao. Nice park at the top with a couple of restaurants. Only 85 cents or so each way.

Like so much in Bilbao, not really set up as a tourist opportunity. Worth a trip for an hour, however, the views are limited and frustrating. Too many trees and electric/power lines spoil what would be good views of the city and surrounding hills. No cafe or place to get a drink and a bite to enjoy the views. Come... More

Not something you see everywhere, and not for those who are nervous of elevators. You get great views of the city from the park on the top.

Short, fun and inexpensive. My husband and I took a picnic and had lunch at the park at the top of the funicular. The trip was 95 cents each way. The park at the top was nice with great views of Bilbao. Absolutely worth it.
