In less than 2 hours from Brig, our guests are in Zermatt, Chamonix (F), Stresa (I) or Interlaken. And because of excellent train connections going south, visit the culture and fashion hub – Milan.

Brig is the most bustling town in the Valais. And in our cafés, squares and restaurants a southern ambiance is palpable.

Visit the impressive Stockalper Palace and the fragrant rose gardens. Now you can understand why it is a good idea to book your hotel room early – and, why an international jury chose Brig for the award of Alpine City 2008.

Brig is a town with a rich history

The Celts were here. The Romans passed by and the Alemanni settled here. The mighty Stockalper – the tycoon of the Alps – built palaces, monasteries and churches. And Napoleon built the route over the Simplon, one of the most beautiful alpine passes.
