Guided city tours in the footsteps of Freddie Mercury

The picturesque city of Montreux in Switzerland is intimately linked with Freddie Mercury and Queen.

Did you know for example that the British band recorded no less than 6 albums there ? Or that the cover of "Made in Heaven" represents a view of the lake and the mountains in front of Montreux ? And that Queen owned for 14 years  the famous Mountain Studios located within the walls of the Montreux Casino ?

In 1996, 5 years after his death, a bronze statue of Freddie Mercury was inaugurated on the shores of Lake Geneva, a place where the singer had found peace and inspiration. Having become a true place of pilgrimage for all his fans, this monument is now a major attraction in Montreux.

Freddie Tours offers you an original way to discover the rich musical past of the city and the strong attachment that Freddie Mercury, the leader of the band Queen had with Montreux. Our excursion will take you to the places that British stars have visited to work, relax and enjoy themselves, while crossing the musical universe of this band that has become a legend.
