HR Giger (based in Gruyere, Switzeland) was the designer of creatures used in the Alien movies.

You will find a museum located in Gruyere devoted to his creative talent and there's even an Alien restaurant which is quite an experience...

Very nice, Herman.  I am a huge fan of the Alien series.  A masterpiece in science fiction, in my books.... the original movie.  Hollywood has a way of ruining a good story and the Alien franchise is no different. Aliens was good and then it went downhill in a handbasket, very quickly.  I actually like Prometheus and Convanent.  Looking forward to the next movie.

Did you eat at the restaurant? I will bet that would be an experience.  Sounds like you are having a great trip!
