HotTug, Brienz



Unique water-based experience for any season

The HotTug is a hotpot filled with water heated to 38 degrees – and it operates on Lake Brienz. Glide easily across the lake as you enjoy the only experience of its kind in Switzerland in the company of friends or family. The HotTug boat is powered by an electric engine – and you steer it as you wish. Discover the natural surroundings from the water.

Put on your swimwear and, after brief instructions on how to operate the electric boat, you’re ready to go. You are the captain as you steer the HotTug across Lake Brienz while your companions enjoy bathing. The water in the boat is preheated to 38 degrees. Throughout the trip, the water can be maintained at this temperature with a wood-fired heating system – so there’s nothing to stop a romantic winter excursion. Snacks and drinks are on sale too.
