Monique and her chefs prepared a sumptuous indian vegetarian meal, elegantly presented and very delicious.

This is our 16th year in a row staying in Brienz for our summer vacation, all of which we have spent at the Baren. The Werro family who runs this hotel is warm, welcoming, service-oriented and extremely child-friendly (there is a playroom stocked with toys and games right next to the "Stubli", the indoor cafe/restaurant.

Why not just ask? All the single rooms with shower on the premises do have a personal...

A very comfortable room, which was equipped with a massage chair to relax in, and plenty of herbal teas, also with a balcony looking at the lake and mountains, which we could never tire of. Excellent and friendly service. The breakfast was great too, plenty of choice.
