Lake Brienz is perfect for exploring the lakes and mountains. I love visiting the woodcutters along the high street. A favourite trip of mine is to catch the steamer to Interlaken Ost. It's a regular scheduled boat, the same price as the standard ferries:
The following link should help with choosing the best travel pass:
From Ost you can catch the train to West (town centre) or enjoy the 15 minutes walk. In Interlaken there's loads to discover, with easy access to nearby Harder Kulm, the Schilthorn Piz Gloria, Jungfraujoch, Trummelbach falls and so on.
The Giessbach Falls hotel on Lake Brienz is a great spot for lunch or dinner - accessible by car and ferry.
Thun is also worth a visit, with its castle. You could combine a visit to the old town with a trip to a peak with view of the lake:
And there's also nearby Meiringen with its funicular railway to the falls that feature in some of the Sherlock Holmes stories!
You'll be spoilt for choice with Brienz as your base.
