Kaspar Stockalper was an early capitalist genius. He simply sold and bought everything that promised to be profitable on those days.
His impressive palace in Brig is a testimony to his wealth and worldly power. The building is the biggest private building of the 17th century in Switzerland. Visit this representative castle and learn about the symbolism and the history of that place. The adjoining gardens as well as the exhibition "Passage Simplon" are worth a visit too.
A short description of all parts of the castle which are going to be visited is given to non-German-speaking people just before the beginning of the public tours.
