Freddie Tour (VIP)
Spend an unforgettable evening at the chalets of Claude Nobs, the founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, with Peter Freestone, the personal assistant of Freddie Mercury for more than 10 years.
Your experience will start with an enchanting ride on a rack railway that will take you to Haut-de-Caux, where you will enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramas in Switzerland at an altitude of 1200 meters. On arrival, you will be greeted as at home, since the chalet is still inhabited by Thierry Amsallem, the former companion of Claude Nobs, who is now owner of the chalets.
These two chalets, "Le Picotin" and "Le Grillon", which have seen a large number of famous artists visit there, contain many personal objects that belonged to Claude Nobs. You will also be able to admire the famous piano used by Freddie Mercury for the recording of the album "Jazz". Recorded in Montreux, the title of this album is a direct reference to the Montreux Jazz Festival.
In this intimate atmosphere and surrounded by collector's items you will spend an evening that is truly out of the ordinary.
