Before i return back to normal operation with more car related blog posts, i’d like to share the fourth and last installment of our Roadtrip. We start where the last post ended (in beautiful Montreux) and slowly move back homewards, with a few stopovers in between.
Our first stop was where we actually wanted to stop at Day 1 of our tour, but then changed plans (See last post). Gruyere:
In one of the castle’s outside buildings there’s also the H.R. Giger museum (of Alien Movie design fame). Unfortunately i wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside. But if you Like H.R. Giger and the Alien movies. THIS is the place to go. It hosts world’s biggest collection of H.R. Giger Art including a lot of original movie set stuff. The only thing i could take a picture from is the “Birthmachine” Sculpture hung outside the Museum. On the other side there’s also a Giger Themed bar with incredible design, but it was still closed early in the morning…
We decided to eat brunch in gruyere. I mean it’s the place where world famous “gruyere” cheese comes from after all. So you defintely should get a cheese plate and a glass of local white wine, while here 🙂
We then hit the road again and stopped at Estavayer le lac. a small town at the Lake Neuchatel. It is famous for the street art exhibitions and you can get a free map at the tourist office, bringing you to all the cool art pieces and guiding you around the town (approx 1-2 hours). This piece was a huge beautifully made embroidery on a house wall…
After we’d seen all the beautiful art, we moved to our Goal for the day: Neuchatel. After checking in we wen’t directly to the hotels rooftop bar, which is probably one of the best rooftop bar views you can have in switzerland:
Thats it. hope you enjoyed the tour with us. Now let’s get back to the greasy and oily car wrenching posts again 🙂
