Good to know

Sleeping at the Grandhotel

You have up to 15 rooms that you can book. As a rule, the rooms above your venue are available, therefore you will get different categories.

Menu consultation

As we are keen to devote enough time to you, we kindly ask you to book an appointment in advance with the Conference & Banqueting department on +41 (0)33 952 25 25. You can also send us an e-mail at seminar-bankett@giessbach.ch.

Menu selection

We kindly ask you to choose a variant for your menu and let us know at least 21 days before the grand occasion. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements (including vegetarians) during the menu consultation, or at least three days before the day.

Menu cards

Standard menu cards are included in the price. Have them personalised with a picture or individual text.

Table decoration

We will happily take care of your floral decorations. Our in-house florist will prepare customised sprays that you can take home after your celebrations. The price depends on the type and size of the bouquets. Candles in matching colours are included.

Parking

If arriving by coach or private car, please park the vehicles in the upper car park. The path from the hotel to the car park is also well lit at night. Hotel shuttle bus trips (12 persons) to the upper car park or to Brienz can also be booked on request. Guests staying with us overnight may park their vehicles in the lower car park.

Funicular

The Giessbach funicular railway takes you from the boat landing stage to the Hotel and back. Reservations can be made when booking your banquet.
