“Grandhotel Giessbach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Views, day trips, hikes, quality of hotel food. Prices were reasonable for a beautiful hotel in an extraordinary setting. We drove to the hotel which offers free parking, but be forewarned that the parking lot can be BEDLAM at check out time. Cars are 3/4 deep in a small lot near the hotel entrance. Checking in can be difficult when people are leaving/arriving at the same time, as happened on a Sunday afternoon when we checked in. All in all it's a lovely spot, and there is also a nice outdoor pool with views of Lake Brienz and its surrounding mountains.

So many beautiful things to look at around the lake that you feel quite giddy. We now have one tired camera in need of a rest.

“Boat trip on Lake Brienz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The boat trips on lake Brienz are enjoyable and the views more than magnificent.
The boats stop are different small villages to let people off or on board. And each of the places has a special beauty of it's own.
The boats are luxurious, clean and well maintained. And the staff is friendly and professional.
Take same time for one of these trips - and really spoil yourselves with a relaxing time in this wonderful scenic world.
