Youthhostel Brienz

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Brienz lies at the upper end of the Lake of Brienz, surrounded by beautiful alpine scenery, which provides numerous, rewarding excursion destinations. A trip on Brienz's steam-driven Rothornbahn, with its magnificent views, is an adventure for young and old alike. Alternatively you can take in the same views on a ramble to the Axalp. Brienz is an ideal water-sports area in the Summer. And if this is not enough for you, there's always a visit to the tourist museum in Unterseen, near Interlaken or a trip, high above, to the Jungfrau, the Niesen or any of the other beautiful mountains of the region.

A quiet location at the lake!

Cosy rooms and all the leisure activities and excursions one could wish for. That's what's on offer when you take a family holiday at the Brienz Youth Hostel, a homely hostel in the Bernese Oberland. The Youth Hostel in Brienz is not just a miniature holiday paradise in Summer, when guests can relax, play or go swimming, but also at quieter times of the year. After all, there's plenty to see, in and around Brienz, right through from Spring to Autumn.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very clean and very nice staff! Great location on the lake and just off the walking/biking trail to downtown Brienz and to the Ballenberg museum. Accommodations were great for sleeping, showering, and breakfast. The guest kitchen is only a kitchenette (sink, microwave, dishes, and mini refrigerator) - so we found we could not cook our meals unless it worked in a microwave! That 'issue' may have been my fault (not reading the hostel information clearly). The other guests were equally nice, clean, and orderly. And several families with nice and respectful children. Our stay was wonderful and I would recommend it to a friend, and would return there myself. It was particularly nice to be at a place that felt like more of a getaway for the locals rather than the international tourists.
