With less than 1 Euro (in 2013...) and less than 1 hour (round trip) you can take this funicular, approximately close to the Guggenheim Museum (but on the other shore of the river), which brings you on a viewpoint above one of the hills that surround Bilbao. The view from above is astonishing and lets you follow the track of Ria Bilbao which is the beating heart of the city.

You can't go wrong for some pocket change. It's by far the best view of Bilbao and on the other side of the hill you can see the Airport and Bay of Biscay. There isn't much to do up top beside gaze but it's worth it. The trains come every 30 minutes or so, you won't be stuck bored up there. Do it just for the view.

Don't miss the occasion the see Bilbao from this place. A short walk from the bridge and jump into the little train which brings you to the top of the hill where you have a great sightseeing of Bilbao city and the surroundings.

This is well worth the time if the weather is clear because once up on the hill you get the most amazing panoramic view of the city.

Walked over the white bridge over the river,up a side street and you are there. Great trip up the Swiss made tram. Walked around the small park a few times just for the views of Bilbao. You can see for miles.
