Brienz

4.4
With roots tracing back to the Bronze Age, traditional Brienz gives the impression of being lost in time. This small village in Bernese Oberland is known as the Swiss center for woodcarving; the city's streets embrace wooden chalets and woodcarving workshops. Brienz is home to a street (once named the most beautiful street in the world) that is lined with 18th-century houses adorned with woodcarvings. The turquoise water of Lake Brienz provides the stunning backdrop for hiking around the area. Brienz is in Bernese Oberland. Our Switzerland trip planning app combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Brienz

A stay in Brienz is best spent lakeside, where you'll find a number of modestly priced hotels near the glittering waters. If you're willing to trade the view for some savings, look to the hostels a bit further inland. Experience local woodcarving masterpieces first-hand with a stay at a bed and breakfast or guesthouse built in the traditional architecture style. Staying anywhere along the main street, Hauptstrasse, gives you convenient access to all the town has to offer. You can walk the whole street by foot, or take the bus from one end to the other.
