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

  • I love this place, it's got a great view by the ocean, super clean everywhere. A good variety of stores across the city. Only really down side it's expensive, on the high end of the scale...
  • For the actual location, I'd give it 2-stars. Really isn't that exciting of a location. My rating is for the walk from the Castle all the way to the statue along the lake. The view is amazing, there is lots of interesting artwork to see and lots of great photographing opportunities.
  • Every year I come here at least once. Somehow it's mystic and peaceful place in one. In addition, I always love Queen songs, it started much before Freddie left us.
  • 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.
  • Very impressive statue right on the lake shore, most impressive at sunset when you can get amazing pictures
