    Nothing special but the statue itself. But still, a must for Queen fans . Many people just stop and take a picture.  more »

    After visiting the city we saw the Memorial of Freddie Mercury. Nothing short of beautiful. Full of people having to queue to pay tribute to this rock legend ... I highly recommend it! It's fantastic!!!

    Cool that his statue is here and that he loved Montreux after a while - I liked it immediately - just saying.  more »

  • Nice to visit Freddy but, there is so much more to see and enjoy in the area. Try the Chillon Castle for example.
  • Nice statue on a square that is very lively. It's a nice spot by the lake and there is a market nearby.
  • Great statue of one of the most talented and iconic artist! Looking at the lake Geneva (Lac Leman), great place to stop by, take a look and think of Freddie's great legacy.
  • Not worth the trip. Much more interesting cities on the Lake. Go to Luzern
  • Nice place with great outlook to the lake. Lot of surrounding restaurants and parking spots.

Where to stay in Montreux

Kick back and enjoy the millionaire lifestyle in Montreux, where luxury and lavishness are always in style. Along the lakefront promenade you'll find a multitude of pricey four- and five-star hotels to retreat to in this Swiss Riviera vacation spot. A number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts are also available for the more down-to-earth traveler. "Budget" isn't exactly in Montreux's vocabulary, however, for more affordable accommodations look southeast to the neighboring town of Vevey.
