Welcome to Funicular


A panoramic bird's eye view of historic Québec City can be had from the cabin of the Funicular that travels at an angle of 45º from Louis Jolliet House in the heart of the old city to Dufferin Terrace. The funicular has been an attraction in the city since the original steam driven version was erected in 1879.

Information & Facts

16 Rue du Petit Champlain
The official languages are English and French (predominantly in Quebec).

The currency used is the Canadian Dollar (CAD), which is divided into 100 cents. One-dollar coins are also known as loonies (due to the picture of a loon, a type of bird, on the coin), and two-dollar coins as toonies. Banks and bureaux de change will change money and travellers cheques, as will some hotels, but the rate will not be as good. Major credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are plentiful. US Dollars are largely accepted, though due to fraud, larger notes might not be and change is usually given in Canadian dollars.

Opening Times
Open daily, from 7.30am to 11.30pm (until midnight from June through to Labour Day)
Canada covers six time zones, from GMT 8 in the west to GMT -3.5 in the east.
