This past Saturday Martin and I met up with his work colleague and family and spent the day making our way to and from Giessbach Falls. It was our 3rd journey there. The first being for Martin’s birthday a couple years ago and the 2nd time with my mom and dad during their last visit.
To get there you can catch a boat from Interlaken Ost (East) which takes you across Lake Brienz and to the bottom of the Giessbach Falls. For 6 CHF, a funicular takes you up to the Grandhotel Giessbach, a beautiful hotel with picturesque views of the lake and surrounding mountains. From there you can hike to the top of the waterfall. There is a small bridge halfway up which allows you to walk behind the falls; a childhood fantasy of mine realised.
