Famous for its Woodcarving

Arrive at Brienz by either lake steamer or train. Make sure to take time to walk along the promenade that skirts the lake.

The promenade is lined with large sculptures by various artists. They are for sale, at a very hefty price tag. This guy is going for 3000 CHF. I was tempted--but he wouldn't fit in my suitcase, would he?

VT doesn't have a page for Ballenberg, so I'm showcasing it here. I will post my Ballenberg info. under Off the Beaten Path, okay?
