“Stunning view of Bilbao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

The ride takes just a couple of minutes. But once you get on top of the hill, you will be greeted by the stunning view of Bilbao.
The ticket is for just one ride. So you have to buy another ticket to get back.

“Fantastic Views over Bilbao”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We'd walked around Bilbao in rainy overcast weather for a couple of days, but still decided to take the Funicular to the top and look down over the city from 800m !

And the sun shone on Bilbao for us :-)

Great views of Old and New Bilbao, and the mountain ranges surrounding the city (some of them still snow capped!)

well worth the ridiculously low 1.90Euro fare

Would have loved to have sat and enjoyed a cafe cortado at the top, but there were no coffee shops in sight, so we had to do the Chevy Chase '...vacation' thing, and look around, take some pics, and go back down for our caffeine fix !

But do take the ride up and down> its worth the fare, and even more worth it for the view

“Worth the Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Fun, interesting way to get out above Bilbao. Not much at top but great views even in the rain! Also reasonably priced.

“A FUN RIDE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This seems to be a commuter funicular rather than a tourist attraction. It runs very regularly and throughout the year. The lower station was incorrectly located on the map the hotel gave us but it was OK on the guide book map. Dirt cheap and a fun ride which gives you a super view of the Guggenheim.
