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.

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.
