When in Montreux you should chose the opportunity to visit the museum dedicated to the famous band Queen in the 'Casino Barriere'. Beside many memorabilia you can enter the legendary mountain studio and act like a sound engineer.

On busy days it's hard to get a photo with the statue but it's worth seeing anyway and going a few steps down to the casino to visit the queen studio inside (for free)

It is a statue of Freddie Mercury, nothing more, nothing less. You will see it on your way to the lakeside promenade. It's not a must see, even though the information center might tell you the opposite

Centrally located statue on the promenade overlooking the lake. Flower promenade walk goes past it and its close to restaurants, old market etc. Worth seeing but nothing special in my opinion.

This is a must see for any Queen fan, very easy to find right along the water. The views from this spot are fantastic! It was pretty crowded with a lot of tourists quickly cycling through to take a photo with the statue! Hang out on the benches for a few minutes and enjoy the view and you'll be sure... More

Montreux, situated on the banks of Lake Geneva is one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland. Blue skies, sharing their color with the lake, which is surrounded by snow clad mountains is a place straight our of any fairy tale..The energy from the nature is simply unbelievable and refreshing. No doubt Freddie Mercury made his recording studio here and... More
