Gruyères is where the well-known cheese Gruyere has come from and it is by far our favorite town in the canton of Fribourg.
Its castle and cheese factory, where they give demonstration on how to make Gruyere attract many tourists, too. There is also the HR Giger museum, Giger is the guy who designed the special effects for the movie Alien. I personally find it weird to have an alien museum in this medieval town, not too far from its castle that was built in the 12th century.
Oh well, I guess it’s okay.. as long as I don’t find any aliens in my Gruyere cheese! 🙂
