  2. Learn about Queen at the Queen Studio Experience. Montreux Mountain Studios at Casino Barrière Montreux is where the band recorded many of their most successful albums. You’ll find lots of Queen memorabilia, including some of Freddie’s handwritten lyrics. The best part? It’s FREE and it’s open late, until about 10 pm or so.
