Brienz and its surrounding mountains are simply great for hikes. Brienzer Rothorn is a perfect place to start hiking to Soerenberg - at the other side of the Rothorn, or you step down again to Brienz - walking-time will be around 5-6 hours and you will pass by plenty of great places, that you will never see when taking the steam-train.
Equipment: Good walking-shoes and weather-proof clothings, because the weather might change fast and quickly in the mountains and shelterhuts are not to be found everywhere.

The Brienzer Rothorn is a paradise for Paragliders and quite often you will see paraglider-Tandem-pilots waiting for their passengers to fly with them down again...
You may book such flights some time in advance ( without knowing what the weather will be like ) or simply take the cog-wheel-trai. to the top and search for a pilot there. As long as you don't come in the high season, it will be easy to find a pilot there and that way you may decide on top of the mountain, if you dare to fly down with one of the pilots. The pilot on my picture was waiting 2 hours in vain before he decided to fly down alone. In fact he was not only going downwards, BUT was able to find a perfect wind to take him UP several hundred meters, before he sailed down to the valley...
200 sfr / 140 Euros is the tandem-flight down
Equipment: The equipment is given by the pilot - they always have a large rucksack with all necessary equipments.
