We strolled pass the lake and saw this statue . Not knowing what it is until we were close . It stands in the centre and many tourists around it .

Honestly there's not much to see, just an average statue. If you happen to be walking past it's worth maybe a minute.

It's a good meeting point in Montreux and just beside the hanging pool. An icon from the music world...

Great statue in honour of a fabulous artist! Only trouble we had is the poor guy was covered up for protection from a wood chopping competition on the square!!!

What a fitting tribute to Freddie. A copy of their last album cover if you get the right angle without people standing there ! :-) It's a beautiful setting there in the lake and takes no offers to see.

Statue of Freddy Mercury, who lived often in Montreux, at the lake promenade. Must see for his fans. Great location at the waterfront.

Stumbled upon this memorial as we walked the promenade. It was a nice and pleasant surprise. I must admit that I didn't know this memorial existed and hence hadn't planned for this.

It's an impressive statue, looking out into the lovely lake, but at the end of the day, there's not much more to say. However, it's the most interesting thing to see In Montreux!

its a good photo place with the iconic Freddie Mercury, worth a visit and a great walk by the lake under the trees along side the flowerbeds.

Hi I'm looking to travel to the statue from Bristol, England. Can anyone tell me what they did when traveling from the airport to the area? Thanks!

If you fly into Zurich take the train to Montreux. You will probably have change trains in Lausanne. Entire trip 1 way is about 3 hours
