Travel Tips for Brig

Brig and the Simplon Pass

by sandysmith

The history of Brig is closely linked with the Simplon Pass, one of the most beautiful alpine passes which starts immediately beyond the city gates. Napoleon built a road through the Simplon Pass in the 19th century to move his armies, thus creating the first man-made road in the Alps. You can hike here from Brig - some 4.5 hrs but there are shorter hikes too.

Brig is a great base for many excursion - to Zermatt by train of Saas Fee by post bus. As for pass routes Brig is the most northerly border station for the Simplon railway tunnel to Italy. To the east, you pass through Goms, and the Furka Pass leads to central Switzerland; the Grimsel Pass into the Bernese Oberland; and the Nufenen Pass into the Ticino.

the monument for Geo Chavez

by globetrott

This is the monument for Geo Chavez, who was the first man to fly over the Simplon, that was in a small airplane in 1910. This monument is on the square next to Saltinabridge. Chavez started in Brig and flew over the Simplon to Domodossola, but the airplane fell apart shortly before landing and Geo Chavez died a few days later of these injuries. Jorge Chávez Dartnell was his full name, but in Switzerland he mostly is called Geo Chavez.He was one of the early flight-poineers, the first man who flew in a hight of more than 2500 meters.
b.t.w. The airport of Lima/Peru is called after him : Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Chávez.

"Brig"

Just a short walk from the train station, I stayed at the Hotel Simplon. Very nice accomodations with a huge bathroom. Brig is a nice small town that can be walked in a day. I especially enjoyed the castle gardens.

Brig - a gem in the Alps

by PartyRambo

I stopped in Brig by mistake, actually... I had friends from Switzerland and thought one of them had come from Brig, so I wanted to call her parents & say hello!

However, it turned out not to be, but I wasn't disappointed, as it's a lovely place to wander the afternoon away.

My single favourite photograph taken in Europe was here, a beautiful mediaeval side street (but I had to wait for the motorcycles to pass before snapping away...)

There didn't seem like much to do here, but it was a break from driving through the endless Alps.
