The statue is located in the perfect spot and is the perfect image of him. The minute you see it, you remember the good times with Queen. People still come up everyday and leave floral tributes to this iconic singer Must see.

At the centre with people making photo shoots. Still an iconic statue. There is a nice round pier built in front of it where you can sit and relax and just watch people (making the most hilarious photos).

It's hard to miss as you walk along the promenade of Montreux's Lake Geneva. It seems iconic...it's been in so many photos from every angle, sunrise and sunset. Fitting tribute to an incredible talent.

The Freddie Mercury memorial is beautiful right by the lake. The artist really captured his energy in the tribute statue. Keep walking and you'll find the casino where there is a museum.

It's definitely a statue. It looks vaguely like Mr Mercury. Most of the people that were surrounding it are probably too young to remember him. It definitely isn't the real thing. It isn't a fantasy No escape from reality.

Freddie Mercury was a musical genius. His legacy transcends anything material in my opinion so I didn't have high expectations when I stumbled upon his "memorial" next to Lac Lemon in Montreux. The statue is as pictured and while it is cool to see him...More

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
