The lake is absolutely stunning with many areas where to stop to admire it and the surrounding mountains. This is Switzerland as we all imagine it to be

“A jewel in the Alps”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Surrounded by mountains, this intensely turquoise blue lake invites the visitor to ride on its boats while sharing a bottle of wine and watching the mountains drift past. The Giessbach falls are lovely!

“Calm, Serene, beautiful”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Went back to Brienz for the 3rd time - lovely, peaceful and cool as always. Just didn't quite like the redevelopment taking place on the waterfront..

“Stunning”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

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.

“Dinner Cruise”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

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!
