The funicular to Tibidabo is old but it works like a tank. The view from the top is inspiring and breathtaking. Don't miss the cathedral or the tower. We were there on such a pleasant day that I walked the entire way home, which is considerably easier than walking up this hill. Several of the sights you can see from here were featured in a video game my kids like, which was supposed to have been based on Italy but was clearly inspired by many of the locations in Barcelona too.
If you're headed to the castle you should ride the Funicular for 10-12 euro a person. The other choice is a walk which someone said was about twenty minutes, but after talking the Funicular I can't imagine how. There are incredible views of the city as you go up. It's a neat, memorable ride.
You will buy a return ticket separately at the funicular station. It's up north on the hill. You can take a bus if walking is tough for you. (I walked from the metro station) very nice views during the ride. You can buy a combo ticket for the amusement park if you are planning to go.
Excellent way to summit the hill and experience arguably the best views of Barcelona. There's a traditional funfair on top which is amazing for both adults and kids. This old tram is an experience in itself, but a little expensive....esp when paying for multiple tickets!
We walked up to Tibidabo and took the Funicular down, in hindsight, taking the Funicular up and walking down would have been another, equally valid option. Amazing views over Barcelona at the top. Great experience, stop reading reviews and go and experience it for yourself.
Many of the windows are covered in graffiti, greatly reducing the view. There is no indication of what time the next car will leave, so you don't know whether to hurry up and get on board or wait for the next car. The price is a bit steep when there is a public transit bus as an option... But it's still a cool way to get up and down from a very interesting landmark. A few minor fixes could earn this a four or five star ride.
Lovely way to reach the top of the hill! Some tourists prefer the bus, but I can guarantee you won't regret using the Funicular. Check online for the timetables.
