“Peaceful boat ride on the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We actually went in October of 2011 but that was not an option to pick. The colors were so vibrant both on the water and the trees! The Swiss pass covers all transport including boats. Not taking advantage of this is a definite loss. Brienz has the most beautiful color to it. Riding the boat to Brienz, a stroll through the little town and back to Interlaken by train. We ended up doing this because one of the trains we were planning to take was not operational. Our cousin whom we were visiting suggested this and it was a wonderful idea. So happy we did!

“Beautiful Lake Brienz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a most beaufiful lake. A boat ride to Interlaken is most fun, with beautiful scenery along the way. Don't forget to come back to Brienz...it is such a nice village!

“Grandhotel Giessbach”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Magical”

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 bubbles 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.
