Brig, reach the fortress of the hill !

Brig is a charming city situated in the Swiss canton "Haut-Valais". Its name, coming from the Celtic language, means "hill’s fortress". Located nearby ski resorts and thermal baths, it is also the ideal starting point for amazing excursions.

About Switzerland

Let yourself be tempted by a visit of the Stockalper Castle, a splendid baroque palace built in the 17th century by a rich businessman.

Enjoy a stroll through the old city of Brig and notice its lovely patrician houses, the pilgrimage church and the Saint Sebastian chapel. Close to Brig, you will be enable to admire the longest glacier of the world : the Aletsch glacier. If you want to relax, reach Brigerbad, only 6 kilometres far from Brig, and spend some time in the outdoors thermal resort equipped with a thermal cave and a river.

Don’t miss the Belalp Derby on January where 1000 participants dressed like witches ski down on 12 kilometres !

Does a eurail pass cover the glacier express? Does the 5 day Eurorail pass allow you to ride the Glacier express, If not do you get a discount? Also why can't I purchase Glacier Express tickets? I want to do so now before it fills up.

    "the trip was good but it would be better if more details on the journey is provided. Like the train stop at domorosola station where we take a bus then walk a few hundred meters with my heavy luggages across a small hill to board another train to connect to Brig, Switzerland. Anyway the service is good and friendly. "

    "Awesome trip very comfortable and very easy to book online and use it. I booked the tickets 2 weeks earlier and i could travel in business class at the cost of 2nd class. Never faced any issue related to ticket booking and usage. Highly recommend Rail Europe. Also recommend downloading rail Europe app on mobile which works without being connected to internet and it is really useful. "
