Visiting the great Kaspar Stockalper

Exciting guided tour of Switzerland’s largest baroque palace in Brig

In the 17th century, Kaspar Stockalper was the most ingenious early capitalist around. Stockalper traded in everything – including mercenaries, ores and salt – that might guarantee a profit. He documented every single transaction in his books in seven languages. The Stockalper Palace in Brig still bears testimony to his wealth, since at that time no other private citizen in Switzerland was able to build a larger palace than he did. You can visit the unique baroque palace as part of a fascinating tour.
