Getting to Grandhotel Giessbach?

by isb2cewl

I am clueless as how to get to Grandhotel Giessbach. I was wondering, how can you get there by train from Geneva? Would I have to switch trains at some point to get directly to the hotel? They have forgotten to include directions on their website, and I am american and have no clue!!!
Thanks for your response,
Isabella

Why didn't you look on the Swiss Rail website, www.sbb.ch?

I mean, nobody here on the forums can have so much information about trains and busses in Switzerland in his/her head as the SBB computer...

Travel Tips for Brienz

by the lake

by peterh9

the unusual thing we found in Brienz was the tiny cinema only the size of a small house, down by the shore of the lake. ( with the carved bears on your left, walk back about 500m and look for a small road leading down to the lake.

Ballenberg Open Air Museum

by Rhondaj

Buses leave beside the Brienz train station every half hour. It is about a 15 minute ride to get to Ballenberg.

IMPORTANT: There are two entrances into the museum- east and west. We got off at the first bus stop (naturally). That was the west entrance. From west to east you are on an up-hill grade the whole way through this very large place. If you'd rather be spending your day on a downward walk, stay on the bus and get off at the east entrance.

Axalp - high above Giessbach & Brienzersee

by globetrott

Axalp is high above Giessbach and it is one of the few places in that area, where skiing is possible for at least 4 months a year. There are 2 hotels up on the mountain and many "chalets" - wooden houses that could be rented also by tourists.
On my picture you may see the former " Hotel Kurhaus Axalp " / , today it is called Alpengasthof Axalp, and this building was constructed completely of wood. It is a really cosy feeling in such an old building, when it is cold and stormy outside.
In summer you may take various of hikes from Axalp:
To Hinterburg-seeli ( a small and cristall-clear lake) - about 2 hours
To Faulhorn and First (see my Grindelwald-page !)
Walk down to Giessbach and Brienz
Walk to Hinterburgseeli - Zuun and finally Meiringen - a fullday-tour.
This hotel has a special meaning to me, because it was there, where I started my carreer in the hotelbusiness and it is a lot of fun for me today to think back of my first severe struggles with the terrible Swiss-german-dialect and hundreds of young skiers, driving me crazy with their orders....You may take a bus from Brienz station to Axalp, the drivingtime on the narrow road is about 40 minutes !
driving to Axalp by your own car is possible , but NOT advisable !
The road is really narrow and has just a few passing-places.
before driving that road, you better check the timetable of the buses !!

Aareschlucht Meiringen - 10km from Brienz

by globetrott

Aareschlucht might be a great half-day-excursion from Brienz : It is a gorge, where the river Aare flows through a quite narrow valley - at first the rocks on both sides of the gorge are in a distance of 200 meters or more and at the end of the path through the gorge you may touch the rocks on both sides at the same time. 1400 meters of artificial paths, tunnels and bridges are leading you through Aaraschlucht. In my personal opinion Aareschlucht is somehow over-rated and only recommendable, when you have not first seen similar places like Truemmelbach in Lauterbrunnen.
From Meiringen you may take the train to Aareschlucht West and walk down the gorge - that way you walk from the less interesting part to the highlights at the end. Or you may park your car at the Aareschlucht-Westeingang, walk up the valley - and start with the most spectacular part and end finally at the east-entrance, where you may just walk back again.

Aareschlucht is open April-November 1st
In July&August there will be light-effects each Wed&Fri 09.00-11.00p.m.!
2/3 of the path, beginning at the West-gate - are adapted for wheelchairs
Parking for guests is free of charge at the West-gate
There is a restaurant, a self-service and a kiosk there !
