Making your ascent to the Grand Hotel
As you approach the Giessbach’s exclusive dock, you will see the tail end of it’s pretty waterfall pour into the lake. From here, you have two options of making your ascent;
- You can walk up the path and get some great views of the forest and lake.
- You can take a ride on it’s famous Giessbach funicular!
At 10 Swiss Francs return, it isn’t the cheapest or longest ride for your money but in my opinion, it’s quality over quantity! As you sit in it’s carriages, you will get some great views of the Brienz lake and the Giessbachfalls. It first opened in 1879 to chauffeur the hotel guests – you can only imagine the splendour.
