Lake Brienz Interlaken sightseeing
Brienz lake is a stunning sightseeing with a turquoise water, surrounded with green Alps mountains in the summer. A lake cruise or a motor boat ride is one of the top things to do at Interlaken.

Boat trip on the Brienz lake

You can take boat trips on Brienz lake, either on a motor-powered vessel or on an elegant, restored paddle-wheel steamboat. Special themed trips can also be taken as well as evening trips with entertainment. There are plenty of facilities on board including excellent dining and banquet services. The boats depart from the boat landing near Interlaken West train station. You can take a half or a full day excursion depending on what you want to see. Lake Thun has numerous churches, fortresses and farmhouses as well as five magnificent castles which you can visit. Lake Brienz has beautiful turquoise water and there are several places to visit around its shores. It has a magnificent natural setting with mountains all around as well as waterfalls that plunge from great heights into the lake.

Take a cruise on a lake steamer

A day or half day excursion on the steamer cruise is a great way to relax and unwind after a busy day on the slopes or rafting the previous day. You can catch a boat to Brienz, a picturesque woodcarvers’ town. The best thing about the cruises is that you can get on and off as and when you please so there is no pressure on you to move on if you’re enjoying a particular place.

You can also head to Thun and take in its medieval castle. The Swiss Open-Air Museum at Ballenberg is also worth a look along with the lovely gardens around Schloss Oberhofen.
