The statue is facing the gorgeous lake. It is right on the prominade. Its a must for any Queen fan. That area is always crowded at all times during the day. Its a must if you are in Montreux

Great statue and lovely location. Worth seeing if your a fan. Obviously still popular judging by the flowers left in tribute.

I am not sure why this statue creates such a hype- well it is tall and impressive and you wish to have seen him alive (maybe you were so fortunate, I was not...). However, I would not especially go there and see it. It is a must for Queen fans I am sure, but I found all the flowers and... More

If you visit Montreux , you will see Freddie Mercury memorial but if you go to the casino , they have the studio of him too and you can enjoy the video. From the memorial is a gorgeous panorama upon Lac Léman, along a lakefront promenade embellished with perfumed flowers. You can just sit beside the statue and contemplate the... More

Not something to put as high priority, but interesting and worth a picture. Queen fans may have a different perspective.

One of our group is a very strong fan of Freddie Mercury so whilst in Montreaux we found his statue overlooking the water. Perfect place as he loved Montreaux

A 'must visit' if you are a Queen fan. An imposing statue by the lakeside, but it was decked out with flowers when I visited. Maybe his birthday...

Only small but worth the visit. It holds lots of memorabilia, plays music and has a great video to watch. It is in the casino on the same site as Queens studio in Montreux.

On a beautiful sunny day in September 2014 whilst on holiday with Riviera Travel walking along the promenade at Montreux I was pleased to come across the memorial statue of Freddie Mercury which is not far from the boat pier and the casino. Many fans had left tributes of flowers and little notes. Freddie's typical "pose" right on the lake... More

Freddy Mercury as a statue is right on the lakefront, hard to miss. He is identified, but not much about his contributions to music. Nearly everyone stopped,and many took photographs.
