5.0(8 reviews)

Brienz is situated at 566 m above sea level and is a popular tourist resort in the Bernese Oberland. It is very idyllically situated between the Brienzer Rothorn and the Brienzersee. From Brienz there are excursions to the mountains as well as activities on the lake. The local mountain, which reaches 2350 m above sea level, is well served by a rack railroad. The ride on the steam locomotive takes an hour and is an experience in itself. The village is known for its woodcarving art and the popular open-air museum Ballenberg.
