Excursion tips

Since the opening of the Lötschberg base tunnels NEAT, Brig can be reached by train from Bern in one hour and from Zurich and Basel in two hours. This fact makes Brig a fantastic place for day trips.

On the other hand, the city of Brig is an ideal starting point for a lot of great excursions: The world famous Big Aletsch Glacier (UNESCO World Heritage Site) is located just a stone's throw from our region. Zermatt, Saas-Fee, Chamonix, Stresa or Interlaken can be reached in less than two hours. Furthermore, Brig is an important station of the world-famous Glacier Express linking Zermatt and St. Moritz. For children, there are many exciting attractions in the region as well.
