Freddie was covered with flower garlands and his pose right next to the lake walk was very cool. The statue is striking and brings back memories of the live Freddie Mercury.

When in Montreux we always visit Freddie Mercury's memorial statue. It's down by the lake, near the market, and there are always people taking photographs of it. A Memorial Day is held annually in September and fans adorn the base with photos, candles, flowers, plants, letters and so on. This year we didn't like the fact that the statue itself... More

Gorgeous panorama upon Lac Léman, along a lakefront promenade embellished with perfumed flowers. You can just sit beside the statue and contemplate the Mountains turning rose at sunset.

Not too much else to say. You'll understand when you get there. We happened to be there during his memorial weekend, so there were lots of flowers and tributes placed around the base of the statue. We also went at sunset, which made it extra spectacular. If you're into Freddie Mercury, or have just heard them name, you should go.... More

Freddie! Love that Montreux loves him. The cool red kinetic energy sculpture that is right near him is worth a gander as well.

Well... What can I say about this place?? This was the main reason for my trip from Mexico to Switzerland. It is a great place to take pictures because Freddie´s statue is right in front of the lake and the sunset is just magnificent!!

Always visit Freddie when we're in Montreux. The sculptor has captured something true in his face unlike some statues you've seen. And the position is truly memorable.
