I note some of the reviews suggest there are terrific reviews associated with the funicular, but in fact you only get the views when you get off the funicular. You can get better views from the cable car or if you stay at some of...More
I suggest that you can get some great views from some of the taller hotels that you may stay at, which will be almost as good as from the hill. The funicular is "ho hum" with no real opportunity to see much on the way...More

Part of the city’s history leading up to the zoo and on to the statue atop Cerro San Cristobal. Single train track splits at the zoo to allow the trains travelling up and down to pass. Nice way to travel up the mountain, disembarking close...More
My idea was to ride the funicular RR down the hill and take pictures as the sun was setting, however that was not to be. The last train down is at 7:30pm which was well before the summer sunset time, so keep in mind this...More
The Funicular is one of the ways you can get to San Cristobal Mirador. I have opted for getting there by funicular and descend by cable car. Definitely worths the extra money. The funicular stops at the zoo station also before reaching the top of...More
We stayed overnight in Santiago at the start of our trip to Chile and were in the Lastarria area. We could walk through the Parque Forestal to the Funicular which took us straight the the top of Cerro San Cristóbal - the views were amazing...More
Great unique experience. Fantastic funicular ride on an antique mode of transport and the best views of the city and the Andes when you get up there.
Could have done without all the crosses and religious paraphernalia at the top littering the place but there...More

It's very easy to find. The station is at the foot of the San Cristobal Hill on Pio Nino (street/avenue). If you head up Pio Nino towards the hill, you will eventually come to a small plaza, packed with vendors selling souvenirs, etc, and the line for the funicular is unmissable. It can be surprisingly long and slow, but there are often entertainers keeping the line cheerful. You will need cash for the tickets and the toilets at the summit do charge, but I don't remember how much. You'll need cash for that too and it's always very wise to bring your own tissue and soap. Once at the top, there's also a cable car ride that's a separate ticket. For both the funicular and the cable car, you can (and should) buy round trip tickets. Have fun!
