(4/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • It is located on the promenade along the Lake on the way to the castle of Chillon Freddie Mercury's statue. Pose interesting and uplifting. Works great.

  • The dynamic aspects of Freddie Mercury statue placed on the shores of Lake. If you are not a fan of big might not be meaningful, very famous rock star and his song everybody thought I would know, I hear a moment away from the star between memories is also I think make sense. Just be sure if you're a fan of the Queen must look for location
