Posts about Brienz BE

I had the great pleasure of working in the small lakeside village on the shores of the turquoise-blue lake of the same name for over seven years, in the central Swiss region of canton Bern. Brienz is principally a traditional village, from the violin-makers’ school to a plethora of carpenters, joiners and woodwork artists. Busy in the summer with tourists travelling between Lucerne and Interlaken, and peaceful in the winter season, it’s high on my list of places to visit in the Bernese Oberland: not just for the quaint traditional feel but also as a great starting point for a boat trip along the lake, or a post bus trip up into the mountains.
