The concept of the Simplon Ecomuseum has its roots in the idea of considering the habitat as a whole and to illustrate the interrelationship between man and the environment. This is why the Ecomuseum is not enclosed between venerable walls.
The culture trail of "Stockalperweg" forms the backbone of the Simplon Ecomuseum. The story is explored by means of walks, in fact, along the way, information boards draw attention to the buildings. In the five museums, Stockalper Castle in Brig, the oldest inn in Simplon Dorf, the ancient Napoleonic barracks, the fortress of the homonymous Gondo Gorge and finally the Gold Museum of Gondo, visitors find traces of great personalities of the past such as Napoleon or Kaspar Stockalper.
