Fun little ride, very eco-friendly (runs on wastewater); smell was noticable but not overpoweringly so. Runs every 10 minutes or so. We took the funicular down; our kids loved it. We spent a pleasant morning walking around the lower part of the city, then took a bus back up to near the main train station. The ride was free after showing the driver our Swiss Flexipass.

It's one of the last funiculaires working with wastewater: very ecologic, efficient and definitely original, like they did many hundred years ago. Therefore, you feel the original smell of the wastewater especially at the upper station. But don't worry: the trip up and down is short but nice, the view and experience worth the small price definitely!

Definitely a great, unique experience, it's short but sweet (just not so sweet smelling). But do make sure you have the precise change at the ready, the machines won't give change! Found myself in that situation quite a few times and had to take the stairs (still a great view, but very steep)

old traditionnal way how to enjoy the center of the city being situated in a hole instead of a hill as usual in Europe. Take the chance and have fun with it as it does make sense to avoid to climb the way back ;-)

The journey only takes a couple of minutes, but the views are wonderful. If you are in the town, do try this.
