Hoje ele teria sido quase um bilionário. No século XVII, Kaspar von Jodok Stockalper acumulou uma enorme fortuna com o comércio e a construção do Castelo Stockalper em Brig. Visitas ao pátio do castelo e ao museu que exibe suas realizações valem bem a pena. Há uma visita guiada a este histórico palácio, com o seu novo Jardim de Rosas e suas jovens videiras.

Stockalper (1609–1691) was called "The King of Simplon". The merchant, banker, large scale entrepreneur, military official and politician built Stockalper Castle in the years 1651 to 1671. The castle is the largest private building constructed in the 17th century in Switzerland. The palace has three towers with gilded onion domes and reflects the immensity of Stockalper's wealth. Today his fortune would be worth far more than half a billion Swiss Franks.

Stockalper's life is showcased in the castle musuem. For a time he monopolized the salt trade and transportation. The guided tour through the castle takes visitors to the impressive castle hall (which has original paneling dating back to the 17th century), the castle chapel and the castle gardens. Furthermore, the castle is still today the headquarters of Brig's municipal administration.
