“Lifesize lakeside statue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

A fitting memorial to a singer with an amazing voice who loved Montreux. One struggles a bit in the summer to have a photo taken by the side of Freddie as everyman and his camera is posing there.

“Nice statue; Freddie looking at the lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

At lot of people came with flowers, candle lights etc etc. It might be September is with a special day of Freddie's life. It is a fantastic walking area along the lake and Freddie Mercury Memorial has a central place in Montreux.

“Nice memorial”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

The statue looks very nice. I can very clearly recognise Freddie and the way he performed during his concerts within the band Queen.
Nice bronze memorial.
The statue is located just next to the Marché Couvert and is facing the lake.

“It is a statue....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Nothing too exciting. I guess it is a must see since it is famous. You really cannot miss it since the lakeside area is a nice path.

“Pleasant Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Freddie provides a great photo op and is located on the beautiful Lac Leman promenade. We didn't go around the jazz festival time so may have missed some activity or buzz but the promenade itself is great to walk on. It also has a few play grounds with swings/slides etc. where the local kids get together and play. You can't complain a ton if you are surrounded by beauty and of course, the movenpick ice cream cart just sweetens the deal! Worth a visit...we were there every evening with our toddler!
