The HR Giger Museum counts many floors in multiple buildings, it’s an extensive collection of HR Giger's art. Sadly I couldn't record any footage inside the actual museum except for the gift shop and the HR Giger bar but let me tell you, my mind was blown away by the immense creepy art.

The museum also features an even creepier sexual art section which should only be explored by the strong minded ones among us.

The Alien franchise is one of my favorite movie series out there, the surreal science-fiction horror genre became one of my favorites after watching these movies. I am extremely looking forward to the upcoming movie Prometheus 2 which will undoubtedly feature more of HR Giger's design even though sadly HR Giger passed away in 2014.

In order to drive to Gruyeres, we made a few pit stops at Lausanne, Montreux, Chateau de Chillon and Broc where we visited the Cailler chocolate museum. At least visiting the HR Giger comes with a very enjoyable road trip since no airport is nearby Gruyeres thus very hard to get to.

Lausanne was exceptionally beautiful with its gorgeous the waterfront which must have been one of the best in the country.

Basel was a quiet little town at which my mom and I parted ways, I jumped on the TGV heading towards Paris and my mom headed for Germany.

In conclusion, Switzerland is one of the most incredible destinations in Europe but be warned, this country can be very expensive if you don't prepare accordingly.
