See this from the boat, especially the old steam driven paddle steamer. This service only runs late spring to mid September, but no extra cost. Free with Swiss Rail Pass. A must do.

We took a short cruise on the lake. The green waters are a product of teh glacial minerals. In Lake Thun - on the other side of Interlaken, the waters are a more usual blue. The best value trip might be one way to Brienz and taking the train back. Unfortunately I hadn't been able to work that out so we went first to Boningen - by mistake after I got on the wrong ferry - and then to Nederried where we caught the train for a five minute return to Interlaken Ost. Even though the trip was aimless we enjoyed the scenery and the sunshine. Overhead a 1960s Super Constellation airliner was circling. Apparently it's one of only two in the World in flying condition.

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

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!

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..
