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. Get some historical perspective at Burgkirche Raron and Felsenkirche Eglise St.Michael. Escape the urban bustle at Furka Pass and Aletsch Arena. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brig: Rhone Glacier (in Gletsch) and Grimsel Pass (in Oberwald). And it doesn't end there: test the waters at Thermalquellen Brigerbad, explore the historical opulence of Stockalper Palace, and savor the flavors at St. Jodern Kellerei.
