Included in the price of the day pass or the Fribourg City Card, you can ride the Funiculaire. It's a very small ride, really. A bit of the history of the city as it connects the old town with the new. You can also climb the stairs next to it, which is not that exhausting.
I heard it's the first funicular (and one of the few) to use wastewater as a counterweight, hence the smell!
The funicular itself is made of wood and is quite old, which makes it special.
You can also go from the old town to the new using the bus number 4 towards "Auge" (bus stop on the rail station side, facing the bicycle park), which might be preferrable if you don't care for the funicular and most importantly if you don't want to walk in the old town to go to some place, but what wouldn't you?
