Weg der drei Wasserfälle

The trail has something to suit all tastes: lakeside sections and meadows, woodlands and craggy cliffs. The highlights of the hike include the three waterfalls, the incredible colour of Lake Brienz and a historic hotel (Grand Hotel Giessbach) resembling a fairy-tale castle.
The Trail offers an exhilarating hike from Bönigen via Iseltwald to Brienz. Depending on your physical fitness, the entire hike can be made in one piece or in several stages. The first section leads to the light-flooded Eschwanden waterfall. Following a wide forest trail you reach the hamlet of Fura and about 1 km further on, the fishing village of Iseltwald.

After a short walk you reach the Mülibach Falls - a wonderful, mystic spot above Iseltwald. You hike along a well maintained hiking trail through a forest, then across open fields with views of Lake Brienz to reach the impressive Giessbach Falls, which cascade over 14 steps into Lake Brienz. You can also walk along a forest path to the Engi postbus stop above the hotel, from where you can walk down the Axalpstrasse to Lake Brienz. You then follow the lake shore to reach the picturesque village of Brienz.
