“Archanda Funicular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Starts in a hole in the hill and has a pair of carriages looking like a flight of steps. Takes you up a tunnel, out into the light and up to the nearby hilltop where you can see all Bilbao laid out below you, as with an aerial photo. Some entertaining sculptures in the park at the summit - one is an enormous fingerprint quite 10ft (3m) high. Takes a few moments to work out what it is - and a good laugh.

“Let's go for a ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Love the funicular, for a 0.95 euros it makes this a must see attraction. It takes about 5 minutes to get on the top. You can't see much from the Funicular, because of all the trees located around the truck, but once you get on the top, you are never gonna believe your eyes. Such an amazing view on the whole city. Guggenheim looks incredible from there.

“views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 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 bubbles 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.
