Stockalper's Palace

It is the stuff of bestsellers and blockbusters: the life of the shrewd trader Kaspar Stockalper (1609–1691) was a tale of hunger for power and fabulous wealth, but also intrigues and family misfortune. His most prominent legacy is Stockalper Palace in Brig, a delightful setting for film festivals, exhibitions and concerts. And it is much more than a mere backdrop: life pulsates between its arcades and park benches – as wonderfully close to heaven as Stockalper intended.

Kaspar Stockalper was the most "brilliant" early capitalist far and wide of his time, the 17th century. The Stockalper Castle in Brig bears witness to his wealth. Stockalper traded in everything. He bought and sold whatever promised to be profitable and noted everything in his books in seven languages - even when and how he bribed or cheated his partners. He had the largest privately-owned castle in the 17th century.
