Giessbach waterfalls and the old, romantic Grandhotel Giessbach might be a great day-excursion from Interlaken or any other place in Berner Alpen. It might be the best to combine it with a visit of Brienz, that is to be found at the opposite bank of Brienzersee. It is certainly the best to get there by ship on Brienzersee, because the road to Giessbach is really quite narrow and also a bit dangerous with oncoming trafic, because only at a very few places 2 cars may pass by each other.
When you arrive by ship you may take a little walk of 15 minutes or take the funicular to the Grandhotel Giessbach, where the most interesting parts of the cascades of Giessbach-falls start. There is a path along these scenic waterfalls and you may even step behind of the water-fall and look down to the hotel.
Giessbachfaelle and also the Grandhotel make a perfect half-day-excursion, maybe in connection with Bramisegg - a traditional restaurant, well known for its cheese-specialities - at a walking-distance of 1 hour (Monday+Tuesday the restaurant is closed)

Address: CH-3855 Brienz - Giessbach
Directions: You may take the ship & funicular or take a walk of 15 minutes. Also the bus from Brienz to Axalp has a stop close to Giessbach. In case that you like to drive on the narrow road to Giessbach, you better check the timetable of the oncoming bus !!
