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.

  • This is a 5-minute stop at most, but it's a nice tribute to the man and is always thronged by visitors all angling to have their photograph taken with the 3 meter high statue. The location is right...

  • Queen fans behold , the legend stands here in his all glory over looking the lake. Close to his museum so stop for a picture and then a visit to see Freddie’s recording studio.

  • I'm from Italy and Freddie Mercury is my idol. I've been there in 2013 when I was 20, I hugged the statue and that was the best day of my life. Freddie I love you! I'll come back to you, I promise. 💘
  • If you are a Freddie Mercury fan (as me), you will love this ever known pose of Freddie. You could buy your own one over Internet. Visit the recording studio to complete the trip!
