Lake Brienz, Brienz

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Brienz
Visit the clear turquoise waters of Lake Brienz, located just north of the Alps. The towering Swiss Alps border the lake, with the town of Brienz nestled in the eastern section. One of the best ways to explore the 14 km (8.7 mi) long lake is by boat--passenger ships have been in operation since 1839. The lake also serves as a great starting point for hikes around the area and into the surrounding mountains. One of the most popular walks runs along the southern bank of the lake from Bonigen to Giessbach through Iseltwald. Our Brienz day trip planning website makes visiting Lake Brienz and other Brienz attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • In the summer the view is beautiful, with ducks on the Lake, stand-up pedal in some places and even camping trailer. The Lake is great, but has several beautiful places to go outside. If you have drive worth taking a walk and get to know the region. Watch the roads in interlaken, for Brazilians can be very traumatic. Many sharp curves, speed of 100 km per hour, and if you decrease they start honking and trying to cut you off on the road. Detail: the road is two-way in only one track to 100 km/h, with many curves. If you do not have to drive off cliffs, better to go by train.
