This is a stunning lake and a boat trip is a must especially on a hot day! You just can't beat the views and the fresh air.

We took a dinner cruise on Lake Brienz in August. The trip left from the boat dock, near Interlaken Ost train station at 7:45. We were served a BBQ dinner on board and the food was included in the ticket although drinks were not. The BBQ meats were grilled onboard and were great. They had plenty of other side dishes which were good but the meats were definitely the highlight. The views on the lake were nice but it got dark fairly quickly so we couldn't see a whole lot and weren't able to take many photos. I was a little disappointed by dessert which was small dishes of ice cream with only two flavor choices. I was expecting a few dessert options like the dinner buffet. Overall, a nice, laid-back evening activity!

one of the best places i hv ever visited... donot miss the views of brienz from the opposite side, where you could visit the 7 step giessebach waterfalls. I did a hike from de city centre and all the way upto the waterfalls it was awesometastic!! and the beautiful street of brunngasse... with all trasitional swiss houses, its worth the title of one of the most romantic streets in europe...

Not the largest, but I think the most elegant and beautiful of the Swiss lakes, which themselves are unsurpassed. There is an attractive hourly service of boats, though it's lucky the weather was so good as only 1st class are allowed under cover!

After visiting the ballenberg open air museum, we reached brienz train station located on the lake, we couldn't resist taking a ride with the steam boat, and it was free for swiss pass holders, we took the boat from the breinz till interlaken ost, then we took the train back home, during the ride which was taking a zigzag course, we enjoyed tne beauty of this lake and the surrounding mountains, we have seen about 2 or 3 water falls during this ride, we took multiple shoots, but the sun can hurt, wear a sunscreen ;)
