  • You could not walk by without taking a photo with Freddie. It was nice being there and having this experience. I'm sure he enjoyed his time in Montreux. Beautiful location. Nice statue.

  • It's a statue alright! Interestingly enough, I was able to see it during a weekend celebration leading to his birthday, so many people were around. Unfortunately, the first and best set of pics (I took) were not backed up in my photos, so I had my husband text me one, and we went back to take some more. Nothing beat the evening shots I had the first time though.
  • On the foreshore with lots of photo opportunities on a good day. You will also find plenty of Queen memorabilia at the souvenir shop immediately across the road from the main square “Freddie Mercury statue” is located.
