Not much of the castle is shown as part of the tour. Tour guide was friendly. Tour was in German. A short synopsis of the tour is available in English. Museum of Simplon tunnel was interesting.

Spent a sunny day in Brig (when Adelboden was cloudy and chilly!) and really liked wandering around the cobbled streets, tiny alleyways, and watching the river race by. Contrary to an earlier review, anyone can join the hourly guided tours of the castle - and if you have a Swiss Pass it is a free tour! Sadly they don't provide... More

Stopped for lunch on way from Lake Maggiore to Zermatt. Brig makes for a great way point as it's about halfway and has a nice old town. The Schloss is the centerpiece of the Altstadt and is quite impressive but unfortunately we didn't have time for the tour. Maybe next time.

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.
