“Gissback Falls...a Natural Wonder”

Giessbach Waterfall
Ranked #4 of 11 things to do in Brienz
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The falls can be reached by boat from Brienz or by car. The trip by car is a bit scary but offers great view of Lake Brienz. The Grand Hotel above the falls is beautiful...a victorian wonder and not more expensive than any others in the area...a fine menu too. We will stay there on our next visit. Views of the lake from the hotel plateau are marvelous. Bring your camera. Also, several pictures of the falls are possible from the bridges which cross it.

To get the most from this waterfall get the boat from Brienz. the boat stops at the geissbach mini railway where you can either walk up or get the little train.
i have been here twice and its best visited just after a storm when the flood waters pound over the top shaking the ground. there is a little bridge you can go across if you are brave enough.Then take coffe on the hitels forecourt. very civilised.

just as impressing as the "Falling Waters" by Frank Lloyd Wright. I saw it on a beautiful warm summers day, but I could imagine its fascination at about every season. Spectacular
