IntroductionIf you're near the village of Brig, Switzerland, which is 105 mi/170 km southeast of Bern, allow two hours or so to visit the nearby Rhone Glacier. This pretty town with its historic center is dominated by the baroque Stockalper Palace, built by a wealthy merchant of that name in the 17th century. Just 3.7 mi/6 km away is one of the biggest open-air thermal spa centers in Switzerland. Surrounded by mountains and Alpine slopes, Brig is also a gateway to the resorts of Saas Fee and Zermatt, as well as Italy (via a major tunnel through the Alps).
