Briga dives - the fortunate Brig
The capital of the German-speaking part of Valais has a healthy and dry climate, one of the regionÂ´s most favorable features. Brig, a historic town, is an ideal location for a scenic vacation with an extensive variety of seasonal activities.
With its stately "Stockalper" palace, the patrician buildings, cozy restaurants and hotels, it offers an atmosphere of well-being and comfort. Breathe some air from the nearby mountain villages and spa resorts, giving you a notion of distant lands. The Simplon, one of the most beautiful mountain passes to the south, starts here.
The charming spa resort of Brigerbad is situated only 6 km outside of Brig. It sports EuropeÂ´s first cave spa (39 - 42 degrees centigrade). With its outdoor pools it is one of SwitzerlandÂ´s largest open-air facilities.
