Pros and cons of Brienz

Brienz is a little town offering all facilities you need during your holidays. It's not as lively as nearby Interlaken, but it's much more authentic. The lake and the mountains guarantee a great view from about every spot in town. Hiking directly from town is possible, but the options are limited because the mountains rise up on one side of the town and the lake is on the other side. The Jungfrau region and the Hasli valley can be reached within half an hour, so all in all you can cover a large region when based in Brienz.
