The Giessbach Waterfalls
The Giessbach Falls are situated on the southern shore of Lake Brienz, directly opposite the village. The falls descend, water frothing, over seven steps to the lake.
At the lakeside there is a landing stage served by the Lake Brienz passenger and steam boat service and a romantic historic funicular leading up to the Grand Hotel Giessbach. The hotel terrace awards splendid views of the waterfall as it froths and roars its way down to join the tranquil waters of the lake.
- Follow the path in 200-year-old footsteps! The powerful old dry-stone walls bear witness to this. This walking route features splendid vantage points and peaceful spots on one hand, for example the old “Ländte” (landing stage), and on the other hand forceful sites near the Giessbach. To make your way back to the top, take the funicular for a leisurely ride, or climb the other side of the railway - sturdy footwear recommended. (30 min).
