Grand Hotel Giessbach

grand hotel giessbach

This one of Switzerland’s famous historic hotels was once even saved by the democratic action of the “Giessbach to the Swiss People” foundation.

It rests majestically in its unique setting high above lake Brienz and right next to the foaming Giessbach waterfalls.


Surrounded by mountains, forest and meadows, offering a breathtaking view on the unspoilt scenery of lake Brienz, Giessbach is a flowered oasis far away from every-day stress and from the nuisances of our time.
Today we find a superb turn-of-the-century residence in unique setting, 70 guest rooms and suites, 140 beds, old world charm and elegance combined with every modern comfort, conference rooms, beautiful ball-rooms and banquet rooms, gardens, terraces, playground, vast idyllic park, tennis court and outdoor swimming pool, bar ‘La Cascade’, Parkrestaurant with Orangerie and terrace, gourmet restaurant Le Tapis Rouge with terrace and its spectacular view on to the lake and the mountains, billiard, library and last but not least a famous cable train.
