“views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

spectacular views for 85 cents each way. Offers majestic views of the city, the Gugg., and the sea. It is quite peaceful at the top, beautiful and lonely, when we visited. It is well worth it.

“Best views of Bilbao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Artxanda Funicular takes you to the top of one of the hills around Bilbao and it is a must if you visit Bilbao. The view from the top is fantastic on a clear day and the ride to the top takes about 3 minutes. When you get to the top go to your left and there is a park with lots of seating and the best view you could imagine. A lovely place to sit and relax and enjoy the view.

“Let your ears pop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

just a little difficult to locate but plenty help on hand. The view from the top is out of this world. Hope it's fine for you. It could do with a coffee shop up there but its all about looking at the city from on high.

“A Bird's eye view of Bilbao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Artxanda Funicular takes you to the top of one of the hills surrounding Bilbao, offering stunning views of the whole city and a clear idea of how it evolved throughout times. There is also a spectacular view of the Gugenheim Museum - a must! This sightseeing place is set amidst a very pleasant and well tended garden where you can also see a beautiful and moving monument to those who died during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). It is a very pleasant place not only for the views offered, but also for the facilities for playing a variety of sports and plenty of room for kids to play. No doubt, a place not to be missed when visiting Bilbao.

“A great perspective of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I think funiculars are great - both new and old. Riding this one gave me a local flavor and the view from the top provided a great perspective of the city. This is definitely worth including on your trip to Bilbao.
