Brig

Brig ©
Brig, officially Brig-Glis is a historic town and a municipality in the district of Brig in the canton of Valais in Switzerland.The current municipality was formed in 1972 through the merger of Brig, Brigerbad and Glis.Together with other Alpine towns Brig-Glis engages in the Alpine Town of the Year Association for the implementation of the Alpine Convention to achieve sustainable development in the Alpine Arc.Brig-Glis was awarded Alpine Town of the Year 2008.The official language of Brig is German, but the main spoken language is the local variant of the Alemannic Swiss German dialect.HistoryThe name Brig is derived from Briva, or "bridge." Its older houses are very Italian in appearance, while its most prominent buildings (Stockalper Palace, former Jesuits' college and Ursuline convent) all date from the 17th century, and are due to the generosity of a single member of the local Stockalper family, the baron Kaspar Stockalper.The prosperity of Brig is bound up with the Simplon Pass, so that it gradually supplanted the more ancient village of Naters opposite, becoming a separate parish (the church is at Glis, a few minutes from the town) in 1517. Start off your visit on the 17th (Mon): make a trip to Landmauer Gamsen, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, snap pictures at Hangebrucke Furgangen-Muhlebach, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Luftseilbahnen Fiesch-Eggishorn AG, and finally stroll through Riederalp. Keep things going the next day: admire the verdant scenery at Lotschental Valley and then step into the grandiose world of Stockalper Palace.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Brig vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

You can take a train from Zermatt to Brig in 2 hours. Another option is to do a combination of train and bus. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in August, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
