“Nice to watch.. at least :)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

Unique & i haven't seen anything like it before. It added to the beautiful scenery :) I visited in winter though, I wasn't interested to use it. There were no clear signs where it takes & if it returns back or not.

A walk by the picturesque area around there is joyful.

“Old and new”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Excellent way to come up the hill from the train station or a walk along the river, the Gave de Pau. Or just take this free ride up and down for a photo op.

“Saves walking uphill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Nothing special about this ride, its short and saves an uphill hike. No views to be had - more of a way of getting from the railway station to the upper part of town. Best thing is it is free.

“Pointless but it's there and free”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

I don't want to kick anything that is free but that has to be one of the most pointless of activities. They have renovated the old cars of the finical and restarted the service and its free BUT it goes up about 100 metres and only moves between the Boulevard de Pyrenees and the lower road. It takes about 3 minutes but it is pretty meaningless

“Goes nowhere.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

The funiculaire goes from le boulevard des Pyrenees to station level. The view isn't very picturesue and it is really a service for locals who find the steps too much.
