Brienz Travel Guide: 61 reviews and 229 photos

Brienz is a charming wood carving village situated at the northern end of its lake - Brienzsee - opposite end to Interlaken. Its a delight to wander the village streets, to admire the quaint wooden houses and notice the colour of the lake - an amazing turquoise colour!

Brienz is also renowned for the Brienz Rothorn Bahn - Switzerland's oldest steam cog railway - another one of those expensive but must do swiss rail trips.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:colour of the water is amazing, great train ride

    Its great to see the Giessbach-falls. 1000 meters above them I was working on Axalp for 12 months a long time ago...
