The statue itself, is just a Statue of course, the Legend is unforgettable. It's a nice memorial. The views from this spot are amazing, the lake, the mountains, the food, the people. Although I went to see the statue, I found myself looking around and being amazed at what was around me. If you make it to the statue, you've... More

It's in a beautiful location right next to the lake with a lot of different spots to sit and relax. However unless your a big fan I wouldn't add... More

Great sculpture of Freddy Mercury in a typical entertainment pose. Located next to the lake. No need to go out of your way to come here, but if you are in the neighborhood, by all means...

I was able to go inside the casino and see his recording studio... Such an amazing experience being there knowing that a band Queen has recorded 7 albums there. The memorabilia from the bands was awesome. The lyrics handwritten by Mercury and other band members and the outfits he once wore... wow... I understand now why he loves this place....... More

Who can come to Montreux and not want to see this. As a Queen fan, unmissable. Easily found 50 meters from the Montreux Casino

Really, it's a statue overlooking lake Geneva, it's a good statue and clearly a likeness of Freddie has been maintained. People are often seen doing a selfie or leaving flowers as a memorial

Lots more celeb memorials in Montreux. Nothing remarkable...the park in the front of the palace is better.

The waterfront where the statue is located is lovely. The statue itself is fine, but it's just a statue. Enjoy the waterfront, soak up the sun, and take the 30 seconds it takes to see the statue. You're done. Now get on with your day and enjoy the beautiful promenade.
