“Mount Artxanda is bigger than just the top of the funicular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Mount Arxanda or better Artxanda is bigger than the nice park on top of the funicular. If you take the 3216 bus which leaves the Arriaga theater very hour at a quarter past. Or get it 2 minutes later on Gran Via in front of the Corte Inglés. You can get off at the Berriz stop where there are some nice resturants and walk around and then down to Deusto. Or take the metro to Deusto and walk up. The views are even more spectacular than over by the funi. Well worth it and it is not that far off. If you want to take the bus back, it makes a circular route-- so you get on in the same direction you got off. When it gets to the end of its route, it waits 5 min and then continues down to the old town-- you only pay once.

“Stunning views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The funicular ride up was scenic and cheap. Upon reaching the top turn left and it brings you to the park. There are plenty of benches and opportunities for photography. The restaurants up there are quite pricey but there are plenty of picnic areas. If you are wearing good walking shoes or boots there are miles of walking routes. Next time we will walk up and down again. Just near the bottom funicular station are plenty of places for refreshment. Give the Bar Arxanda a miss! We had the menu of the day and it was awful.

“Best View of City, but Power lines Mar Photos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Mount Arxanda can be reached by car, funicular, or bus (if you have an hour to waste). There are several mid-quality restaurants and what could have been a wonderful view (were it not for the power-lines).

“Outstanding views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

This small mountain close to the center offers best views of Bilbao.The funicular links the town with the top of the hill every 15 minutes and is very cheap,around 1 euro.Once there go left and after a short walk you will get a wonderful view of the river,the city and the surroundings.Dont' miss it!
