That's all. Pose for your photo/selfie, sing a few choruses of "We are the Champions" and move on...

This larger than life statue of Freddie striking his instantly recognisable pose is a definite must see if you are visiting Montreux. Sited on the lake front, you can not miss him. Don't forget to have your photograph taken with him!

Best to visit early as people tend to not move away and give you chance to take a photo without them in it

You come across the Statue of Freddie Mercury as you walk along the Promenade. Many people will stop here for few minutes to take photos. There are many Statues in Montreux to see and enjoy.

I frequently visit the Freddie Mercury statue in Montreux, it stands proudly on the waterfront next to the market and is perfect for beautiful photos at sunrise/sunset (being a fan helps!) or even just with Lake Geneva lapping nearby.

It's the main focal point of the Montreux Freddie Mercury Memorial Day which usually happens on a weekend around September 5th (however there is no event this year 2014). If you're a Queen fan this event is a must, there's such a good atmosphere and great company including Peter Freestone; to attend the event it's free however boat rides and talks do require a fee but they are excellent value. The Freddie statue features on everyone's photos who have attended one of these events, it is a fantastic tribute to a legend.
