Freddie Mercury Memorial, Montreux

(4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to an iconic music star and long-time resident of Montreux, Freddie Mercury Memorial occupies a prominent position on the city's lakefront. Designed by Czech sculptor Irena Sedlecka, the monumental statue is almost 3 m (10 ft) tall, depicting the singer in one of his trademark stage poses. Unveiled in 1996 in the presence of Mercury's former bandmates, the statue remains one of the city's major tourist draws. Bring your camera and snap a photo or two with Freddie. Freddie Mercury Memorial is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Montreux Edition.
