The Giessbach Foundation
The non-profit Giessbach Foundation was established by Franz Weber in 1983. Its mission was to save from demolition this Belle Époque hotel—a historical jewel— today its purpose is to preserve this wonderful piece of local heritage, set above Lake Brienz, for the people of Switzerland and all its visitors from abroad. To be able to continue safeguarding this heritage in the future, the Foundation relies on subsidies. If you would like to learn more about the Giessbach Foundation, please click on the link below.
