Hi Chyna

Yes the elevator can take you down again or you can walk. Personally I don't think it would be worth the cost of the entrance fee if you merely went in for a quick look from the platform by the elevator. A more satisfying waterfall experience would be to take the boat from Brienz or Interlaken to Giessbach Falls and the funicular up to the hotel and falls. Your Dad could probably manage to get to a point where he could get a good view of the falls then rest on the hotel terrace if you wanted to explore further by climbing up to a higher point. You can then continue the boat trip to Brienz or Interlaken. Be sure to note the boat times when you first arrive at Giessbach so you know when to take the funicular back down to catch the boat you want.

Enjoy!

Maggie
