Great ride, go all the way up. We went to the top, enjoyed a stay in -4 degree weather and came back down to castle. The cars are full so do not expect to have an unobstructed view, but well worth the trip. While it...More

During off season there is nothing to do at the top but enjoy a nice view of the river, bridge and old town. Still worth the trip up.

On the slow ride up and down there is a great view of the city and countryside. Try to get the front car if possible.

It seems many of the tour groups include a funicular ride along with castle entrance, so the ride up and down the hill can be very crowded. Each car has a few seats and many more standing. The ride is short, and efficient.

This is a really fun side trip. Two funiculars - one really old. Make sure you buy a ticket to the top. The view of the valley is spectacular. This is a leisurely and fun side trip. If you are limited with time - not...More

Most people take the funicular only up to castle, but consider a detour to the top if the weather is nice. Up to the castle, the funicular runs mostly in a tunnel, so there are no views. This then changes dramatically and you end over...More
