What a view!

The incline provides a breathtakingly beautiful view of the City of Pittsburgh. One you should not miss whether you reside in Pittsburgh or are visiting.

A fun activity to do in Pittsburgh. The car takes you up the side of Mt. Washington, giving you a beautiful view of the city. There's also a small museum at the top with historical information about the attraction.

We took the incline up in the evening. It's cheap and the view was amazing on a clear night. The trip is a little rickety if you are scared of heights.

The best view of one of the world's most beautiful cities. Beautiful in the day, even better at night. You cannot visit the 'burgh without doing the Duquesne Incline!

For anyone questioning if they should take the extra minute to check this out, the answer is yes. Once you are at the top, spend an extra second to look around inside of the building and visit with days gone by. Cute little gift shop at the top. Nice dining right next door. Platforms for great photo ops of the... More

The incline was such a cool way to see the whole city. Seemed to work well, but if I ever saw any thing doubtful on the way up, I changed my vantage point! Good historical info at the top of the mountain. A must see if you are in Pittsburgh

I suggest going at night! Start at the bottom, and watch the city appear before you!! There's a wonderful observation deck at the top.

We went at night. We were the only ones on the tram. Great view of the stadium, river confluence and city lights. Ride is 5 dollars round trip per person and takes about 5 minutes. Gift shop was closed at 930 pm when we were there. Trip advisor address takes you to the top, however the parking lot is at... More
