Woodcarving has enjoyed a long tradition in Brienz. At the International Woodcarving Symposium, you can look over the shoulders of artists from around the world as they go about their work. The task for every carver is identical: all of the artists are given a solid log of local larch. They will then need to create a sculpture from this within five days. The approximately 20 invited carvers represent different woodcarving styles and cultures. All of their carving is done outside – directly alongside the lake on Brienz's quay.
