The adventure path Railway - Nature - Art begins and ends at Brig railway station. It can be walked from April to the end of October and is signposted with brown signposts "Erlebnispfad Bahn - Natur - Kunst". On the way, more than 50 boards provide interesting information about the railway and its history. The information boards on the "Rafji" forest adventure trail, the "Achera-Biela" nature trail and the Termen mountain farming adventure trail provide information about trees, shrubs and flowers. On the way, sights make the heart of every railway, nature and art lover beat faster. The pure hiking time over the 12 km long adventure path is about 3 hours; with the 5 km additional loop nature trail "Achera-Biela" and adventure path mountain agriculture Ried-Brig - Termen about one to two hours more. The adventure trail is easy to walk on, but good footwear is an advantage.

The construction of the Simplon Tunnel and the three railways - namely the Swiss Federal Railways, the BLS Lötschbergbahn and the Matterhorn-Gotthard Railway - have strongly influenced the history of the region. From Brig station, the adventure trail leads to the north portal of the 19.8 km long Simplon tunnel, which connects Italy with Switzerland. It continues on to Bitsch and via the Hennebique Canal back to the Massaboden hydroelectric power station. Along the adventure trail we will encounter several sculptures by the artist edelbert w. bregy with corresponding explanations. Via Naters we reach the station Brig again.
