Good afternoon!!

I'm planning a trip to Switzerland and Brig looks like a great place to base ourselves for a day to see the surrounding areas.

Zermatt/Matterhorn

Spiez/Thun/

Chillon castle

and we would like catch glacier express from brig the next day.

is it doable?

Thankyou

Hello Yshu Krishna!

< is it doable? >

Yes. And Brig itself has a lovely old district.

Enjoy!

Hi Yshu Krishna. Do you plan to visit Zermatt, Spiez/Thun and the Chillon Castle all in one day from Brig? That's really not doable. You could do one of those trips, but combining all of them from Brig in a day would hardly be possible. Please check the timetable to find out about traveling times and to plan your trips: www.myswissalps.com/timetable.

Yes, you can board the Glacier Express in Brig: www.myswissalps.com/glacierexpress/gettingthere.

Hi again Yshu krishna,

In the 2nd post of this thread, I said it was doable, but Annika's remark make me realize I might have misunderstood you. Each of your three destination is doable from Brig, but one per day. So you would need three days to visit these places from Brig.

I hope you can make the trip!
