Several restaurants and bars are also located in the village as well as banks and other typically found shops.

Brig Campus - At the foot of the Matterhorn

The University Centre is situated in the town of Brig-Glis, the largest German-speaking town in the Valais Region and at the foot of various famous ski resorts such as Zermatt and Saas-Fee.

Brigs charming cobblestoned centre with its many restaurants, bars, cafés and shops, is located within walking distance. The central tra.in station is just few minutes away from the campus where trains can take you to Bern in one hour or to Milan in just one hour and a half!
