Wowwwww ! Tucked away in the mountains over looking the majestic lake of Briensee, this most beautiful and very powerful water fall is very, very impressive. Impressive because of its beauty but also for the whole surroundings. Magnificent !

It's a pretty high falls. The view from the Lake Brienz cruises are very nice. You can get down at Geissbach and take the steep funicular ride to the top. There's a hiking path too to go even closer to the falls. It's amazing.

This is a nice excursion, with easy access to the waterfall via well-marked paths. Even the view of the historic hotel itself on the backdrop of the lake is worth the visit.
