Brienz Travel Guide: 70 reviews and 240 photos

Brienz was my home for more than a full year & I was working there as a young student, earning my first money as a waiter in a mountain-restaurant....

...and in october 2005 I returned for a short vacation to see it all again and take hundreds of photographs !!

    What a wonderful and memorable place to have lived in your youth-and even today. The scenery must bl;ow your mind when you wake up every morning and see nature at its best

    Great tips and photos. Went camping at Lake Brienz some years ago and like Starship we got told off for making too much noise at about 21.00 hrs;)

    Nice page! Stayed in Brienz in 1983, and one of my favorite memories was getting locked out of hotel because 11pm was considered "very late in Switzerland." I have a similar map placement of the moutains which I treasure as a souvenir.
