Where the Giessbach Falls end is where Lake Brienz begins. As soon as you’ve admired the powerful cascade of water by the Grand Hotel Giessbach, you’ll be tempted by a cruise on the traditional “Lötschberg” paddle steamer. It’s also worth making a detour to the village of Iseltwald, where visitors can grab a stand-up paddle board and drift across Lake Brienz.
Amid mountains, forests and meadows, the Grand Hotel Giessbach has welcomed visitors for more than a century. Its restaurants, Les Cascades and Le Tapis Rouge, serve the finest cuisine. Meanwhile, the 22-hectare park and garden are full of different flowers and plants which guests can discover on a short tour. They can also enjoy a refreshing dip in the adjoining natural pool with water temperatures of up to 25℃.
