It is great that Montreux has honoured Freddy Mercury with such a great statue. Certainly a surreal setting during the afternoon sunset! Don't miss it is you are in Montreux.

Well represented statue of Freddie Mercury. It's located in a nice part of the city, in front of the lake. It's a must of Montreux!

Get to Montreux by public transit and admire this music icon in this beautiful lakeside setting. Freddie is also a meeting point; so tell your friends to meet you in front of Freddie for all Montreux lakeside events!! So cool!!

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
