Brienz. The perfect Swiss town.

If you’re traveling to Switzerland, I really encourage you to make a quick drive to Brienz. It’s located on the eastern end of Lake Brienzersee, 15 minutes away from the very popular go-to town of Interlaken. This isn’t a town where you’re going to find tons of shopping and restaurants, instead, you’ll find a picture perfect Swiss community that’s destined for movies. Brienz is a small, adorable, quiet town that sits between mountains with a really tall waterfall, and the glacial blue lake.

We spent 3 nights in the best Airbnb in Switzerland. You can stay there too–click here. If you’ve never used Airbnb before, click here to get $40 off your first stay. Our host was so kind, and checking in was as simple as any hotel. The entire was–mediocre, nothing too special. It had a small kitchen, espresso machine, very modern bathroom, great working heaters, and a comfortable mattress….but what makes this specific Airbnb so special is the street that its located on. I didn’t know this when booking it, it was just a happy mistake, but this place happened to be on one of the most photographed streets in Switzerland (it’s even mentioned in travel books like Lonely Planet!)

This place was soooo pretty! I could even see myself living here one day!
