Funicular de Artxanda

For the best views in town, take the short and cheap journey to the top of Mount Artxanda via the Funicular de Artxanda. The almost 100-year-old rack railway links downtown with nearby Mount Artxanda, and, even better, views of Bilbao and beyond.

Opened in 1915, the Swiss-made track-mounted wagon climbs over 200 meters during its three-minute ascent, eventually dropping riders off at the summit. There, you can take in views of valley-cradled Bilbao, with its iconic Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum, and the River Nervión as it slithers through the city.

You’ll also discover more than just views, but a recreational area filled with gardens, a hotel and sport complex. And, if you’ve worked up a hunger, stop at various restaurants, where you can sample regional cuisine such as pinchos, essentially Basque tapas with an almost-gourmet twist, or sip on txakoli, a local dry white wine.

At just under a euro per ride, and centrally located, the funicular remains the best way to take in Bilbao, and is an experience that shouldn’t be missed.
