I've spent some time on "google" so piss of...:)
What was Freddie's address in Munich, where was he living...? The street is enough...
Thanx

PS
A friend of mine is going to Munich and wants to know; would like to go myslelf (beautiful city), but this year's holiday I'm gonna spend in Poland- going back to my country for the first time in three years... That's going to be weird...

I believe it was the Hilton. The studios where they recorded are in the Arabella-Haus (dull place). But he should go and see the laser-show. I've seen it, it's great!! Other places - Freddie's party venues no longer exist.
I study in Munich and there's many cool places but not so interesting Queen sites.

He stayed in a hotel, at first, with Winnie, for some time, but then moved into an apartment that he and Barbara bought together; the same apartment Barbara lived in until she died. The address is really quite easy to find.

He shared a flat with Barbara, I was there and saw that particular flat a couple years ago but didn't care about the address, sorry.

Before that, he really stayed in Hilton. I have a photo of the hotel somewhere.

"Other places - Freddie's party venues no longer exist."

Mrs. Henderson gay club is still there. But basically all other places are gone, that's right.

When in London I usually step by Logan Place because I love that house. It such a dwelling in the middle of London. Noisy area but very peaceful and quiet resort - class!

But watching Barbara's (ex-) flat is not that good....

It's just that we walked by, normally I don't give a damn where who lives. We had a couple of free hours before the AMAZING Munich laser show so we decided to walk in the city and check some of the "famous" places. All the pubs, clubs and flats are from each other just a couple of hundred meters.

No offence. It was intended to be a tip rather than telling somebody what to do or not.

Fenderek: If you read "Freddie Mercury:The Definitive Biography", you will find the address right in there. Sorry, but I won't post an address here as I think it is too personal to do so. Plus, it is very easy to find if you really want to do so.

It can't be too personal if it was published in an easily available book. Get off your high horse and help the guy out.

Then if you have the book, it's there. It's right in the chapter about Freddie and Barbara's life together. It's quite plain to see. There are many, many people on this forum who have that book, surely someone out there can find that address. But, again, I won't post it because I feel that for the family's sake, I wouldn't want to do something like that.

Again, if it's in a book, the information can't be *that* private. Stop worrying about nothing, and just tell him what he wants to know.

Whose family?

Freddie's?
Barbara's?
The author of this sterling and in no way cash-in tome's?

I'm all confused again.

Barbara does have a son and I think he should be respected, especially now after her death. I have been in contact with him, by sending my condolences on her death and he was so kind to reply.

If you go to Munich, you should check out Musicland studios, if only to see if the legend is true about people going crazy when the mountain wind blows in, the fuehn I believe. Brian mentions it during the commentary for "One Vision". The wind blows down off of the mountain and for some reason people are overcome with suicidal tendencies.

By the way, welcome back, Malina. Glad you reconsidered and came back to the noticeboard.
