“Funiculars rock!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

For the price of a bus ticket, you can ride up and down on an old-fashioned funicular and save yourself a very steep walk.

“Old-style tram feeling”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Only 5 minutes of travel, but a feeling of having time-travelled back to the 1920's.
Shortest possible distance form the middle of the "new"-city down to the old-town.

“A 'must do'”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Good fun, if you are exploring Fribourg it is a great way to get between the two parts of the town. Be warned, the machines do not give change, so make sure you have the right coins. The ticket lasts an hour, so you can manage to go both ways on the same ticket if you want to.

“What a fun ride!”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The walk down into old Fribourg is wonderful, and it is awesome to have the Funiculaire to get back to the top as it is quite a walk back up.
