Crash Landing On You – Switzerland Filming Locations

As you probably know, many of the most stunning locations in “Crash Landing on You” (CLOY) were filmed in Switzerland. This super popular South Korean television series captured the hearts of viewers worldwide. And a big part of the appeal was the inclusion of Switzerland’s breathtaking landscapes and picturesque locations.

There is also a map of all the CLOY locations around Interlaken below, and one for Zurich further down. These should help you find all the spots!

Sigriswil Panorama Bridge

The Sigriswil Panorama Bridge plays a pivotal role in episode 4 of CLOY. This is when Jeong-hyeok sees an anxious Se-ri and asks her to take a picture of him and his fiancé (Seo-dan). This saves Se-ri who was thinking of taking her life by jumping from the rather precariously hanging bridge.

This suspension bridge, known as Sigriswil Panorama Bridge is a stunning place to visit as it hangs 180m over the Gummischlucht Gorge. It is 340m long in total and offers great views of Lake Thun and the Bernese Alps in the distance.

You can easily get there by public transport with the following connections:

  • From Thun Bahnhof: Take Bus 21 or 25 to Gunten Dorf (takes 21-25 minutes)
  • From Interlaken Ost: Take Bus 21 to Gunten Dorf bus stop (43 minutes)

There is also parking at the end of the bridge. It costs 5 CHF to enter.

First – Schreckfeld Cable Car Station, Grindelwald

After the Sigriswil bridge scene in Episode 4, Se-ri continues taking pictures of Jeong-hyeok and Seo Dan, but this time it is a completely different location. It is along a hiking trail near the First – Schreckfeld Cable Car station, which is a mid-station of the First Gondola that climbs above the stunning Swiss town of Grindelwald. You can catch the First gondola from Grindelwald and also continue to the very top where there is another breathtaking Crash Landing on You scene!

Getting There

You can reach The First Gondola station in Grindelwald by walking from the Grindelwald train station. To get to Grindelwald you can catch a train from Interlaken Ost or drive and park in the center of town.

First Mountain, Grindelwald (aka First-Flyer)

In Episode 16 of Crash Landing on You, Se-ri actually lands a paraglider on a field on First Mountain and finally meets Jeong-hyeok. This location is the final stop on the First gondola ride, above the Schreckfeld. It is also a popular take-off spot for paragliders in the area, so you are bound to see many of them circling above you on a warm, sunny day in summer. You can see some of the Jungfrau region’s most impressive mountains from here including the Wetterhorn, the Eiger north face and Monch.

Note: This location is often labeled as First-Flyer, which is not the location but the name of a popular activity that stars here along with the First Cliff Walk. If you want to fly like Se-ri here, the First Flyer is indeed the best way to do it!

Kleine Scheidegg

In episode 2 of Crash Landing on You, Jeong-hyeok and Se-ri both stop to gaze at the stunts of the local Swiss paragliders flying high above Kleine Scheidegg. This is a train station high above Grindelwald and about halfway to the Jungfraujoch.

There is even a specific CLOY love-heart selfie spot right on the train platform to mark this spot on Kleine Scheidegg, which I took the above photo of on a recent visit.

Getting There

Kleine Scheidegg can be reached by train from either Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen, with connecting trains starting in Interlaken. You can also catch the Eiger-Gletscher gondola up and walk down to Kleine Scheidegg.

This is also a stop on the way up to Jungfraujoch if you are taking the whole trip. So, you can stop here on the way up and back.

Jungfraujoch

Jungfraujoch is the last stop on the train and the highest train station in Europe. It is also the place where yet again, Jeong-hyeok and Se-ri indirectly meet in Switzerland. They are on the train together traveling on one of the best train trips in Switzerland – the journey to the top of Jungfraujoch.

Getting There

To get to the top of Jungfraujoch you need to buy a ticket to the “Top of Europe” and catch the train from either Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen. The ticket is quite expensive, but if you combine it with a full day out stopping at Kleine Scheidegg and Eigergletscher as well as at the top, it is well worth the expense.

Isletwald & The Lake Brienz

One of the most popular scenes in CLOY with viewers was in episode 3, where Jeong-hyeok poignantly reminisces about his time playing the piano in solitude on this wooden “stage” on Lake Brienz. Se-ri also happens to hear him playing at a key moment in her life while cruising on the same lake.

This specific CLOY location has also been the scene of many real-life marriage proposals!

So Iseltwald and Lake Brienz are tied together in the show. There is also another scene where they walk along the shores of the lake in Isletwald, so there are two reasons to make your way to this tiny hamlet.

Want To Save This For Later?

I will email this post to you, so you read it for later (or keep for reference).

Note: Just be respectful of the locals when you are there, take your rubbish with you and try not to be loud and annoying. Only 400 people are living there.

Getting There

The simplest way to get to this tiny village on Lake Brienz is to take Bus 103 from Interlaken Ost train station. It takes around 21 minutes to make the trip. You can walk from there to the location.

Note: There is now a 5 CHF charge to walk on the stage as it has become overly popular.

Grandhotel Giessbach

The Hotel Giessbach is a romantic old-world hotel located next to the stunning Giessbach Falls above Lake Brienz. And yes, they also play a role in Crash Landing on You in Episode 9. It is here that Jeong-hyeok is apparently attending music school and he is hanging out with his school friends just before meeting Seo Dan. It does not play a huge role in the show, but it is worth visiting the Giessbach Falls as well as the hotel if you are also going to the Isletwald locations in the show. It is a short trip between them, and the views are jaw-dropping!

Victoria Jungfrau Grandhotel & Spa, Interlaken

The Victoria Jungfrau Grandhotel in Interlaken does not feature heavily in Crash Landing on You, but in Episode 16 you get to see it briefly. Se-ri and Jeong-hyeok meet here during the annual piano performance. It is yet another chance for the lovers to meet not far from many of their chance encounters that were never to be. And, it is the only Crash Landing on You location in Interlaken.

Getting There

Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel is right in the heart of Interlaken on the main road connecting the east and west sides of town. Just follow the paragliders as they drift down from their day trip into the air. They land opposite the hotel and there are a lot of them around on a good day.

Address: Höheweg 41, 3800 Interlaken

Lake Lungern

Se-ri and Jeong-hyeok are lucky enough to stay in a cute chalet with a view of Lake Lungern during the yearly rendezvous. The house is a private residence, so please do not bother the people there. However, you can visit Lake Lungern easily by car or train. It is a small lake with a stunning setting and is less than an hour’s drive from Interlaken.

Getting There

The easiest way to get to Lake Lungern is on the train between Lucerne and Interlaken (50 minutes). However, if you are already in Interlaken there is also a train that goes there in the opposite direction which takes around 1 hour.

Be aware that you want to get off at the Kaiserstuhl train station and not the Lungern train station. This is at the opposite end of the lake to where the view is (the view is close to Hotel Kaiserstuhl). The view from this end of the lake is stunning. Just follow the road down from the hotel. The hotel is also a great place for lunch or dinner and they have a lovely hotel.

CLOY Locations in Zurich

There are a variety of places in Zurich that you get to see during the show, especially as Se-ri is walking around Zurich with her suitcase and going shopping.

I live near Zurich so I know the city very well. I can tell you the following is in Crash Landing on You. All of them are walkable from Zurich HB or central Zurich in general.

Lindenhof

Lindenhof is one of the best places to get an epic view in Zurich as you are above the Limmat River and can see the Grossmunster church in the background. The makers of CLOY seemed to have agreed.

Münsterbrücke

Se-ri can be seen walking across the Münsterbrücke in Zurich, one of the more picturesque bridges in town. You get great views of both sides of the river from here as there is the Grossmunster on one side and the Frauenmunster on the other.

Paradeplatz

Se-ri clumsily drags her suitcase from a tram at the central tram stop in the Zurich banking district called Paradeplatz. This is in the heart of the old town of Zurich and a few minutes walk from the Münsterbrücke and the next stop – the Schweizer Heimatwerk on Uraniastrasse.

Schweizer Heimatwerk

A little shopping never goes astray in Zurich and Se-ri and Seo-dan can be seen shopping for sweets in the Schweizer Heimatwerk during Episode 11. This is right along the Limmatriver so you can include it easily on a tour of the other locations mentioned above.

There is also a fun walk right next to the building (you can see the start in the first image on the left) which takes you along the Limmat River on various walkways and under some small tunnels/archways. The views are great from there too.

    1. You can visit all the ones around Grindelwald and Jungfrau perhaps in one busy day. The rest are a little further away (sigriswil bridge, Giessbach Falls, Lungern – those you could visit on your way between Lucerne and Interlaken). Then there are places in Zurich, which is another day. So, 3 days minimum.
