We will have the whole Grandhotel to ourselves and we will be trying to fill up the house as much as possible.
For this reason, we suggest you partner up with a friendly colleague and, if possible, share a double bedroom.

Single room 190 CHF/night, shared double room 140CHF/night.

Please book your rooms directly at the Grandhotel here using the promocode unfrozen.

  • Single room: 40 CHF/night
  • Shared double room: 30 CHF/night per person

For booking send an e-mail to: marie-eve.vonallmen@hkb.bfh.ch

How to get there?

By Train

There are two possible ways to get Giessbach, either via Lucerne through beautiful mountain scenery (with one change), or by fast train via Bern and Interlaken (two changes).

Zurich airport to Brienz station will take you around 2:45h.

We suggest you book your ticket directly online

and Post Bus

The Post Bus (direction "Axalp") stops at Abzweigung Giessbach. From there, a 15-minute walk past the waterfalls leads to the hotel.
