“A fitting tribute”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

It's just a statue but nice to see him honoured. It makes a good photo op. Touching to see that people still leave flowers, candles and food?

“"Who is that?" I was asked.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Just happened to come across the statue of Freddie Mercury without specificaly looking for it. People including us were just walking by without any great interest in the statue. Had to look at the name plate to see who it was a replica of.

“His Presence”

You could understand why Freddie spent so much of his time here in Montreaux, Fanatstic monument for a very talented Musician.

“If you love Freddie... must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

For anyone who loves and appreciates the contributions of Freddie Mercury. Our teens love him and the music of Queen, even though the music is from my time. We had fun taking our photos with the statue. There are many restaurants and shops nearby plus ample parking.

“Needs to be kept clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We love Freddie and his music. The memorial tends to get trashy as people leave flowers etc and they do not seem to get cleaned up
