  • 30 second ride. Great. 15 mins sat in car at bottom waiting for lift off. This means 45 mins from buying ticket to getting to top. Why does it need to wait? Its a one line funicular. Very annoying.  more »
  • We bought two tickets and after waiting all the line the tickets did not work, and they made us buy the tickets again without giving us any solution. They were nice but ineffective.  more »

  • Defo worth it! The best way to get on the top level of the bridge. Also it takes you straight to the old tram stop, route 22.
  • Great views and lovely city panorama.
