I was in Switzerland just a little over a week ago for the first time ever, I was actually going there for the Rolling Stones concert in Lausanne which is a city 25 km from Montreux. I have to say that as I drove towards Montreux along the Lac Leman the feeling is just amazing, there is really something special about that area. To my surprise the hotel was just right next to the Casino and Mountain Studios, well what's left of it, it was great to see the Freddie statue, funny feeling really after seing it in so many photos, on tv, etc, and of course the Duck House for which I rented a little motor boat to get closer to it. Being in Montreux just for 3 days was a real magical experience and now I understand why Freddie fell in love with this place, I have as well and can't wait to go back, it has something special, enchanting to it, the lake, the moutains, the swans, the peace and silence. If you have never been there, this is to encourage you to go, if you are looking for breath taking views and peace this is the place. Now 'A Winter's Tale' makes much more sense to me. If you already have been to Montreux, what was your experience like?
Oh yes we'll keep on tryin'
