Whereas you can't compare this with the funicular in Hong Kong, it still takes you to a wonderful vantage point giving extensive views over the city. The single fare is less than 1 euro - excellent value.

The trip was an experience. The views were fantastic. There was a great local bar and restaurant up there.

Nice little adventure up the hill - there are parks and bars/restaurants up there and great views over Bilbao - just under one Euro in each direction.

A very easy walk along the river on the opposite side of The Guggenheim, down a small side street, lies the Artxanda Funicular. A cheap and cheerful way to get a great view of Bilbao. I was fascinated to see that it also had a hotel up there and was a residential area too! Got to be done just for the view!

Worth going up to get a great view of the city and its surroundings. Cost about a euro I think. Worth a walk back down the steps .
