HR Giger Museum
The magical, dreamlike and erotic universe of Alien

HR Giger became an internationally renown artist through his biomechanical art and the creation of Alien, which earned him an Oscar in 1980. His museum showcases a variety of his most important creations, reflecting his mythical-magical universe.

The adjacent Giger Bar with its gothic arches represents one of the artist’s most beautiful works of art – its features and furnishings evoke the appearance of stone relicts in old cathedrals… and exert a mesmerizing effect on its visitors.
