SHOWDOWN IN GRUYÈRES
The historic town of Gruyeres is located in Switzerland on a small hill. To date, the city has retained its medieval flair. Three very different museums can be visited in Gruyeres. The old count residence is located on a hill above the Saane. The castle from the 13th century is now the museum, which shows eight centuries of culture, local architecture and history. In the near castle of St. Germain is the museum of the Oscar winner HR Giger with all his fantastic artworks. In 2009 a Tibet Museum has opened its doors with over 300 Buddhist sculptures and works from different Himalayan Regions. However, beyond the museum culture scores Gruyeres with excellent cuisine and exclusive cheese production.
