This very beautiful mountain lake is in its south, east and west flanked by high mountains and belongs to the most impressive lakes of the Alps.

Wine and Dine
Everything from the cellar hasn’t its origin from the region and depends therefore on the kind of Restaurant you choose.

Maisgnocchi or potatoes soup with cheese flakes or a golden “Roeschti” with bacon are a treat. Not to forget the fine fish “Felchen” from the lake or the smoked meat “Brienzer Rauchfleisch”.
Like on all the other places visited by tourists in Switzerland, you have a large variety of international cuisine too.
