Worth a look.

Nice park, interesting building, old town surrounds worth walking around. Not tempted inside as had read mixed reviews of the guided tour.

The Stockalperschloss is a remnant of the political history of the region of Oberwallis. It was built by the Stockalper family, as a token of their wealth and power, drawn from trade across the alps, with Italy. Paying it a visit is surely a thing to do, if you are travelling in the region. It has very beautiful gardens, and... More

We have been to Brig on a number of occasions, staying once and using it as a transit point to Saas Fee, Zermatt and Bettmeralp. The town is pleasant with the odd good restaurant, surprisingly a really good Thai restaurant. The Schloss is a point of interest, but just that while you are there. Not a destination in itself, but... More

This really is worth going to see. There is an exhibition on the Simplon Tunnel. It has been well cared for and it was a nice surprise. It overlooks a sculpture garden.

Stockalper castle is an unusual looking building in the Swiss town of Brig. It stands in nice gardens and has a pretty silhouette against the big mountains around it. Inside there is not much to see - you can go into a courtyard but there's not really much to see there. It's more of an attraction to view from outside.... More

It's really nice and monumental building for such a small town.It takes you back in the past.We liked it,it's a must see when in Brig-but then again you can't miss it even if you tried:-) If you are by car,there is a garage right next to it(follow the signes for the Centre of the city parking)

Very impressive building for such a traditional quiet town. The castle is very unusual. The towers are high and the building is massive with big internal palazzo to trade the goods (sorry I am not so strong in architecture :) ) it looks like the owner was really reach person. Worth a visit.

Had high hopes visiting Brig whilst staying in the Jungfrau Region. Was disappointed as there really wasn't much to do other than walk around, browse in a few shops, eat, or drink! Visited the castle which was very pretty, but that didn't take too long. The only good thing was I posted a postcard to the UK on a Sunday... More

The views were worth the visit, it is a nice place, but you can't see all the rooms, and the tourguide did not speak English.

We found out the hourly tour is only available in German. So we chose to just visit the courtyard that's FREE and open to the public. Great photograph opportunities. We walked through to the garden area and the small cute vineyards. where the grapes grew close to the ground! The fee is $8 Swiss Francs to tour. Saved ourselves $16.... More
