It is usually held annually over two days on the beginning of October. In each case, at 14:00 clock the event will be opened by a Cougar, which comes out shot over the ridge and firing in a steep turn all flares. This is followed by performances by fire-fighting and rescue operations with helicopters. Then offer the fighter pilots with their target shooting the main part. Suddenly emerging from the abyss they fire on the bright-colored cloths, which are the targets, and pull their machines seemingly at the last moment before the nearby mountain wall high around in a screwing behind the ridge dive. The Patrouille Suisse shows the result of their respective standard program. A demonstration of the Cougar is the conclusion of the event.

  • A nice trail to Lake Hinterburgseeli, with lots of wood carvings along the way. If you take the bus from Brienz make you sure you check the bus schedule because the could be up to 3 hours before anoth...  more »
  • Number of days in the summer in apartments in Axalp. Lovely quiet village on the mountain with beautiful views and natural beauty. Nice shop with all necessary things. Recommended for hikers and cyclists. Road to Axalp is curvy and very narrow on some pieces. But after 3 x drive goes up and down getting used. Not much to do for children (only walking). This should be able to keep themselves busy. Our children could play nice with each other and enjoyed the views. Walking path with wood sculptures is recommended and do well with children.

  • We have half an hour from Brienz by car driven to Axalp. We are on foot from axalp gone to Hinterburgseeli. This walk is quite flat and on the road you can enjoy beautiful wood sculptures. Once arrived at the Lake of Hinterburgseeli you can enjoy the landscape. If you come by car back to Brienz are can I still recommend you to stop for a moment to the Giesbach waterfalls because here you'll pass anyway.

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.
