Suggest you take the lake steamers from Interlaken, takes one and quarter hours to Brienz, stops at delightful villages enroute.

The old paddle steamer is best, departs 1107 hrs from Interlaken Ost near to the station. Discounts given to Swiss rail system passes and half fare railcards. Do the journey one way and return by train for stunning views both ways.

Lake was so torquoise blue it was amazing.
You could see where the cloudy glacier water comes into the lake.
Lovely picnic spots, boat rides or just take a walk by the water.

The true blue water lake outside the interlaken east station. One should do the cruise ion the lake. We wanted to do the cruise but missed the last ship which was around 4 o clock in the evening.

Right outside from the Interlaken Ost railway station, the boat (sometimes a steam boat) takes you to Brienz, where you can take a train back to Interlaken Ost. It takes about 2 hrs in total and makes for a relaxed and visually stunning trip across the blue lake. The blue colour is the result of rock settling in the lake from the gletschers.

Tips:
- At the railway station, I bought a roundway ticket which included the boat trip
- You can hop off on other docks aside from Brienz and take the bus back to Interlaken if you want
- On the steamboat, the first class was the entire upper deck, the second class the lower deck. Great view from the second class, however!

We visited the two lakes around interlaken (Thun and Brienz). Both of them are beautifuls. The boat in Lake Thun was a little bigger and better, but the landscapes on the lake banks are the real attraction.
