Perhaps smaller than I'd thought but conveniently located on the lakeshore sidewalk about 350 meters from the casino housing the Queen Studio Experience. Freddie's iconic and defiant stance is close enough for people to touch and have their pics taken. He doesn't quite come alive but best to visit after having been to the Queen Studio Experience while the music... More

It is really not an attraction but nevertheless it is a nice monument/memorial on the shore of Lake Geneva. Nice spot to take a picture and remember a great artist.

Like many other travellers have said its a statue, I can appriciate it for a moment or two and take a picture but I wouldn't travel to Montreux just to see it. the view is the real scene Stealer here, its magnificent and the mountains look surreal, come to Montreux for that!

Yes, there is a statue of Freddie but your in the city of Montreux on Lake Geneva! Take the stroll around the lake, stop and have a glass of wine at one of the many restaurants/hotels. Also, we decided to take the boat excursion around the lake with several stops. What an enjoyable afternoon!

Remembering him as a great artist. Nice pilgrimage. The show must go on as some said. This statue is a great landmark of Montreux with a nice view on the Lake of Geneva and also the Alps. One can sometimes see the touching messages that people leave on the statue.

A nice statue of the great Fredie Mercury. Placed infront of the lake Leman he looks like alive. If you plan to visit Montreux have to see it! No words!

Just a statue - but you should see it when you are a fan of Queen / Freddie Mercury. Located at an exposed place in the park, view of Lake Geneva and the Alps in the background.

If you're a Queen fan this is a pilgrimage you must do. To see Freddie's statue is a must, take in the view of the lake and listen to "A Winter's Tale" of "It's a Beautiful Day" from the Made in Heaven album. It's quite touching.
