Gruyeres-Densely packed day?

Jump to last reply

Finally making it to Gruyeres in a few weeks, daytrip from Solothurn(2:12-2:42 transit time one-way).
Because I will be short on hours, arriving 10 a.m at best, I'm trying to prioritize must-sees. These include #1)Broc Fabrique for chocolate tour/devour/buying, AFTER Gruyere to limit chocolates purchase carrying/melting.
#2) Lunch in Gruyeres (not La Maison du Gruyeres), probably La Maison des Traditions or Hostellerie St-Georges and
#3) Giger Bar OR Giger Museum.
Your opinions on the Giger choices (?skip the musuem and just have a drink in the bar?) and Chateau (just walk around grounds for views or spend valuable time touring it?). NO INTEREST whatsoever in cheese factory...already visited alpine hut doing so.
