You can find the largest permanent collection of H.R. Giger's work at the Museum HR Giger located in the 400-year-old Saint-Germain Castle in the small town of Gruyères, Switzerland.

A Giger Bar opened opposite the museum in 2003. Just like the Giger Bar in Chur, this one is modeled after many of the biomechanical elements from the Alien films and designs for the Harkonnen furniture from Alejandro Jodorowsky's unproduced version of Dune.

The Giger Bar in Chur, Switzerland, Swiss-artist H.R. Giger's birthplace, is one of two Switzerland bars designed and modeled by Giger in the biomechanical style seen in the Alien movies. This third successful attempt at a Giger bar opened in 1992 after two disappointing and now long-closed Giger bars had opened in Tokyo and New York in the 1980s.
