Axalp Route


From Brienz the Axalp Route takes you high above Lake Brienz to Axalp while you enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding mountains which are reflected in the turquoise water of Lake Brienz.

The Axalp Route takes you from Brienz to Axalp where stunning views and a family-friendly hiking and ski area are waiting for you.

Brienz is known for its traditional woodcarvings on the town’s rustic buildings (PostBus stop Brienz, Railway Station). The practice of fine woodworking is carried on today by a wood sculpting school and a violin building school. The Swiss Woodcarving Museum houses numerous beautiful sculptures (PostBus stop Brienz, Gärbi). The lake beckons you to take a stroll along its shore, jump in for a refreshing swim, or venture out on an exciting boat ride. You could visit the striking Giessbach Falls aboard the historic steamship Lötschberg, for example.

Axalp is situated in a glade high above Lake Brienz (PostBus stop Axalp, Sportbahnen), a starting point for many beautiful hikes. A walk to Giessbachtal is particularly enjoyable or a stroll along the woodcarving trail which leads past a number of remarkable wood sculptures. In winter, an exceptionally family-friendly ski area is open for those who love snow. The kids will have great fun in the “Axiland” children’s ski park and on the practice lifts. Cross-country ski trails, winter hiking paths and sledding tracks ensure that nobody will be bored. Axalp is also the site of the annual target practice demonstration of the Swiss air force.
