  • "The heart of the small town of Brig kozépkori, angolkerttel, ovezve. The Park and the castle's courtyard free access, excellent hiking destination in all seasons, especially for those of you who are interested in the historical sights and architectural knowledge. Taking pictures is excellent, with its light at night:)

  • I had often gone to Brig, but I had never taken the time to stop and visit. This was a great discovery to discover the Sockalperschloss (or Castle of Stockalper). It is an unusual and beautiful architecture. The grounds are beautiful and the courtyard also. On the ground floor, there is an exhibition on the Simplon Pass which is very interesting and free. The visit to the castle is complete with the guided tour which has a reasonable price. The only downside was that the very nice guide did not speak the french. This is what cost them points here. But it gave us a little workbook with the translation of his explanation. I highly recommend the tour that allows you to visit the most beautiful parts of the Castle. It can be done in french according to the information that we were able to get.

  • The castle is built on the model of an Italian Palazzo. He is one of the largest private residences in Switzerland. The building is constructed of granite and volcanic rock. The three towers of the Castle are named after biblical Kings Magi Caspar, Melchior and Belshazzar. They are decorated with domes-bulbs. Although the building, which was taken over by the municipal authorities in the year 1948, are local and cantonal institutions, several halls, among them justice, Knight's, are open to the public during the tour

  • I recommend the guided tour! Only 8 chf and they start even when there is only one person.
  • It deserves a visit if you're in Brig
  • I loved beeing in the garden and watching the montains! I will definetely come back.
  • Nice to see and stay for a short while. Impressive view
  • Very nice to see, especially the exterior and the surrounding garden. Inside a few planks untidily, retrace historical, historical events from different periods. The halls are visited only with guided tours for a fee (check the website). Temporary exhibitions, which are also paid, often occupy some rooms on the ground floor.
