The funicular is accessed in a neighborhood that is fairly close to the zubi zurri bridge. The square at the base is bustilng with people. There are a few trips per hour, with the fare being paid each way. At the top there is a lovely park with fantastic views of the city. There is a memorial to some civil... More

We went up in the funny little funicular, and the view from the top was impressive though the whole valley was partially cloaked in mist, lovely place for a picnic

The entrance to the funicular is a little tucked away but when you find it, it is well worth going up to have a look at the view. For only 95c you can go from river level all the way up into the hills that overlook the entire valley. You'll be able to see from the Guggenheim, past the harbour,... More

Across the river from the Guggenheim and down a couple of back streets you'll find the charming funicular which will whisk you up to the top of the hill for a spectacular view of old and new Bilbao and environs. There's also a decent restaurant if you want to enjoy lunch up there. You can fit this into an hour... More

The funicular runs from quite close to the river, and for only 0.95 Euro, takes you to the top of the hill with some spectacular views over the city. There is also a park at the top from where you can sit down and enjoy the view. The funicular runs around every 15-20 minutes and is a must-do on a... More

A very smooth ride up the mountain on this funicular. Nice and clean in the cabin too. Only cost €1:90 each way. Nice park at the top that you can walk around and see the great views of Bilbao.
