Tumbling over 14 steps, the Giessbach Falls thunder from a height of 400 m in mighty white cascades. This imposing mass of water surges past the fairytale Hotel Giessbach to join the turquoise waters of Lake Brienz. Well-kept paths meander along the bed of the brook so that you can marvel at this roaring spectacle of nature on foot, from a variety of angles. Wooden bridges give you a chance experience the thundering waters up close. A photo amidst the refreshing spray and fine mist of water is a must. By night, the captivating waterfall is beautifully framed with coloured lights. To enjoy the sight, why not stay a night at the romantic, historic hotel? The Giessbach Falls are a highlight of the Holiday Region Interlaken at any time of year. In autumn, the natural spectacle is bedded in a landscape of rich colours, while in spring, the waterfall swells to epic proportions thanks to meltwater from the snow.
