This is an awesome property.

We spent a week at the property and it has been brilliant. Ms.Rosenthal, the owner of the property ensured that everything was in order. The communication was prompt and the details provided regarding the property was extremely useful.

The property is minutes away from stunning Alps, pristene lakes and breathtaking passes (furka, susten and grimsel). Easily accessible by train, car and public transportation.

We would definetly come back!

A beautiful corner of Switzerland, and perfect accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

A delightful place to stay. Brienz itself is central to many wonderful walks/sights, but also a 10 minute walk from the apartment takes you down to trains, buses, ferries to all other areas. The apartment is a perfect little haven to return to each night - warm, comfortable, beautiful views - could not be better. Although I never met Agnes, she responded very quickly to any message I sent, and made me feel very welcome. Thank you Agnes, I hope to be able to return some day!

A pearl in the Bernese Oberland is the lovely city of Brienz, beautifully situated on the same turquoise lake at the foot of the Brienzer Rothorn (2350m asl).

The old village still houses Schnitzler Schnitzler and a well-known violin-making school. While strolling through the old part you see the typical chalets Brienz, while strolling on the quay you can feel the breath of the lake with its fascinating moods.

Brienz is an ideal starting point for many excursions and activities. Station, boat station, bus station and the valley station of the Rothornbahn enjoys close proximity.

Brienz is easy to reach both by road and by rail.

Winter sports and hiking in Meiringen-Hasliberg, Axalp or Grindelwald with Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains, swim in Lake Brienz or one of the many hiking trails at the lake or in the mountains invite.

The famous four-thousand-Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau can be admired close.

Other Activities: Snowshoeing

- Jungfrau Ski - Region

  Kleine Scheidegg - Männlichen - Wengen

  Grindelwald - First

- By train through the Lötschberg tunnel, then the PostBus Lötschental, nice area
