Kirchhofer sells a mix of fine Swiss crafts (carving, weaving, embroidery, etc). as well as the usual tourist kitsch. Sadly the branch in Brienz closed about two years ago. The nearest functioning branch is in Interlaken. The obvious place to find great carvings in Brienz is the Huggler family store down at the end of town on the Hauptstrasse heading towards Interlaken. A visit to the Jobin museum of carving on the same street in the middle of town is also highly recommended.

Kirchhofer, a chain of stores offering lovely Swiss crafts as well as the usual Kitsch, has closed its Brienz branch, reportedly due to declining revenues. The store in Interlaken remains open, but is more Kitsch oriented than the Brienz store was. More upsetting is the decision by the Jobin family to close their century-old wood carving business, apparently due to a drop-off of tour buses making scheduled stops there. However, all is not lost. The Huggler store and atelier remain open with a fine selection of wood carvings from the expensive art pieces to the tourist trade items. Their hand painted wood carvings of farmers and farm animals are utterly charming, though not cheap by any means.
