Info



The Montmartre Funicular (French: Funiculaire de Montmartre) serves the Montmartre neighbourhood of Paris, France, in the 18th arrondissement. It is operated by the RATP, the Paris transport authority. It was opened in 1900 and entirely rebuilt in 1935 and again in 1991.
Despite what its name suggests, in its modern state the Montmartre Funicular is technically a double inclined elevator.It carries passengers between the foot of the butte (outlier) of Montmartre and its summit, near the foot of the Sacré-Cœur basilica. It provides an alternative to the multiple stairways of more than 300 steps that lead to the top of the Butte Montmartre. At 108 m (354 ft) long, the funicular climbs and drops the 36 m (118 ft) in under a minute and a half. It carries two million passengers a year.
