If you love Queen music, you'll certainly enjoy the Freddie Mercury statue & Queen studio. It's next to lake Geneva & is walkable distance from the train station

In a beuatiful Place in Montreux, Freddy raises his arm facing the lake. People left flowers and candles, take pictures and look for other statues near this famous one. The sunset is a great time to come and visit.

Stood beside the statue on New years eve to watch the fireworks across the lake. Also visited it during the Christmas markets that were one in December. Truly great statue, showing him in a great pose. Great performer and singer, well worth the travel to pay respects to him

If you have ever tapped your toe to Bohemian Rhapsody and are in the area then this is a must. It's where the great man lived and the statue is a true token of how great a musician he was.

This is hard to rate because if you do not like Queen, you will not care about the statue. It is a larger than scale statue of Freddie with a mic in his had. During Christmas, some extra decorations have been added. Nice tribute to him and his contribution and love of the Montreux area.

If you loved or love QUEEN this memorial will touch you right in the heart - Montreux is the place to see lots of QUEEN memories such as this statue but also there is a museum and the studio inside the CASINO Don't hesitate to have a look it is great
