Especially if you are a Queen fan, this is an iconic statue, with wonderful lake views, which change with the differing light at different times of the day. Don't forget the Queen Studio Tour in the Casino, one of the best free attraction I have experienced for a long time

With so many statues in Montreux a long the lake, you will find this one first as this is located right in the center. Nothing so special about it, however, I think having a picture with Freddie Mercury statue is a must while you are in Montreux.

A must for all Freddie Mercury Fans, The Memorial is a perfect reminder of who the original Queen of Music was and He couldn't be placed in a more beautiful location!

I have always been a fan of Queen and of people who made a difference in the world.For me it was touching to see this and be in the place where he spent his last years. Montreux is a gorgeous city.

If you take a walk along the lake you are going to run into Freddy statue. I personally think that he doesn't look a lot like himself on the videos, but it's a great photo spot!

It is in fact quite a small memorial for such great an artist! But his is Switzerland, don't make it too obvious, we don't like royalty here!

For those that loved his talent it is great to see this memorial to Freddie Mercury. Although he was not born here, he had a special love for this town. It was popular with tourists and located on the lakeside.
