Brienz is an excellent base from which to explore many attractive excursion destinations. The Ballenberg Open-Air Museum gives you an insight into the rich cultural heritage of the region and the whole of Switzerland. The nostalgic Brienz Rothorn Railway dates from an almost forgotten era. On the one-hour trip, which masters gradients up to 25% and 1678 metres in height, you marvel at imposing views of mountain summits, flower-filled meadows and the turquoise waters of Lake Brienz. The most impressive way to experience the Alpine lake’s magical play of colour is with a cruise on the paddle steamer SS Lötschberg. And thanks to the Brienz Experience Card, you won’t have to miss any of these three pearls.
