The Falls of Giessbach, Brienz, Switzerland

On a recent trip to Switzerland we took the ferry from Niederried on Lake Brienz to Giessbach. A short hike starting from the ferry landing took us along the beautiful river where many falls, both large and small, make their way down the steep valley. At mid-point we passed a wonderful grand hotel which overlooks the largest of the cascades. We continued on up the trail which crossed the falls at several levels and at one point allowed us to walk behind the falls with views of the hotel and valley below. On the return loop we enjoyed a glass of wine at Hotel Giessbach and enjoyed the views of the falls and Lake Brienz. For those who prefer not to hike there is a funicular that will take you up to the hotel.
