Dedicated to an iconic music star and long-time resident of Montreux, Freddie Mercury Statue occupies a prominent position on the city's lakefront. Designed by Czech sculptor Irena Sedlecka, the monumental statue is almost 3 m (10 ft) tall, depicting the singer in one of his trademark stage poses. Unveiled in 1996 in the presence of Mercury's former bandmates, the statue remains one of the city's major tourist draws. Bring your camera and snap a photo or two with Freddie.

Freddie Mercury Statue reviews
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.
