  • This was an unexpected surprise for me. I had already spent a couple of hours walking around the main drag from the train station through the central plaza, browsing store windows and checking out res...  more »
  • The Stockalper castle is a very impressive and extremely picturesque building in the heart of the old town of Brig. From the station, this historic building in approximately 10 minutes walk through the old town, renovated after the flood, is easy to find and reach. Ye are but with the car on the road, then drive in the city of Brig in and follow the signs direction Simplon. After you have passed the Hochhebebrücke about the Saltina, you can see the entrance to the parking garage - but at the same time the West flank of the Castle along with Park West-facing left after estimated 100 m. In this medium-sized, lookalike again according to old plans Park, you can enjoy the last rays of the Sun in peace. The Park is divided into several parts and loads to the stroll a. The stock Alp er Park is public and therefore also an important meeting place of the Brigergemeinde. In the summer, the arcades of the courtyard are over and decorated with flowers. Again, the square courtyard of the Castle offers a platform for any occasions. In the Stockalper castle - basement artists, but also newcomers present their works to the public, which is always exciting. Of course you can also the history of Brig and in particular the family Sankara several rooms distributed, learn, see and read. The Stockalper castle with its Park, an encounter zone to relax, but also of art and culture. Lived here. There is no "dead" lock - it provides the history of development of the past up to the present day. The Briger have a small but highly recommended cellar Theatre, whose entrance is located on the north side of the Castle. Here is exquisite, high-quality theatre, as well as music for lovers or even poetry presented. It is worth to take a look on the current program, if you will stay in Brig. The Castle returned to its original purpose, as the city government there again after the renovation of the Castle, was introduced. For this reason, of course, not all public premises can be made accessible. Nevertheless it is worth for history buffs, a guide (1 h / P.p.. sFr. 8.-) to participate, especially as a substantial contribution to the Stockalper castle in the development, North/South link. In the courtyard you can admire still today two carriages from the time. Who wants to see the Stockalper castle, will be automatically located in the old town. It is not very large, but it is worth seeing and cozy with their many restaurants. Come on, if you have time, not only the old Simplon road high, but sometimes unabashedly crosses many streets and alleys. You become the one or other time wondering where you suddenly stand - namely in a very different, perhaps even modern designed district of Brig. For walkers - the Stockalper castle, the output or endpoint of the old historic Roman way is ever after, which side they come from. But now enjoys Brig and enjoy the Stockalper castle. I go back every year several times in this small Alpine town.

  • "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:)

  • 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.
