“Unique and still working for everyday life”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We can to Bilbao for only reason to visit this world heritage. Its unique and it’s working for everyday life for local people. It’s amazing. Is was not good weather on the day thus we did not get walking the high footpath but we got in the hanging bridge few times to across river. It cost 0.35 euro for one way to ride on it. One disappointment is, there was huge yellow plastic duck for airline advertisement hanging corner of the bridge. It was ruined the whole view. This place is one of pass way to camino de Santiago. It takes only 20 minute from city centre by Metro. It’s better to take line 2 and get off Portugalete and working down to the river.

“Well worth the effort.”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

I'm fairly comfortable with heights, but I'd certainly feel safer with a steel walkway rather than a wooden bolted effort. Not that I'm judging Spanish engeering.
The view on a clear day is awesome especially out towards the sea.
As comfortable as I am, I still made sure I stood on the metal cross sections when the runners for the gondola rumbled by.
The lift up and down is more scary with the humourless girl lift operator.

“World Heritage Site”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

This is a world heritage site well worth seeing, especially if you have never seen a "hanging" bridge before. You might even see people bungee jumping from the top.
Sit at the café on the corner and enjoy the spectacle or walk around the corner to the marina.

“The ferry bridge”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

If you like industrial herritage, this is the place to see. Take the Metro from Bilbao. It is a working transporter bridge, cars and pedestrians are ferried accros the river. Buy an ticket for €7 and take the lift to the top of the bridge, here you can walk to the other side and have a great view over harbor and towns.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

I was enchanted by this industrial accomplishment. The bridge has something in common with the Eiffel Tower and besides, it's useful too! People and cars can cross the bay on a "flying" ferry that is definitely worth seeing. Also, the view from up on the bridge is wonderful!
