Intro

The Giessbach brook tumbles in 14 stages, over a length of 500 meters and out of the high valleys of the Faulhorn area down to Lake Brienz. Historic Grand Hotel Giessbach is located at the foot of this nature spectacle. The hotel is accessible by means of Europe's oldest funicular.

The Giessbach brook has its source in the high valleys and basins of the Faulhorn-Sägis Valley and feeds the world famous Giessbach Falls, which tumble into Lake Brienz near the landing stage. Since the 19th century, there has been a footpath that leads to and under the waterfall. Since that time the 14 steps of the Giessbach Falls have been named after Bernese heroes.

Grand Hotel Giessbach was built between 1873 and 1874 and is located in a 22-hectare park and garden complex. The Giessbachbahn was established in 1879 and is the oldest funicular in Europe that is only used by tourists. The train connects the landing stage of "Giessbach See" (Lake Brienz) with the hotel, which is situated approximately 100 meters above the lake.
