The Ultimate Crash Landing on You Itinerary | Filming Locations in Switzerland

Here comes the ultimate Crash Landing on You filming location itinerary! I wanted to do this trip for such a long time and now I can finally share you my movie location trip, where I visited some famous spots around Switzerland within 2 days. Before we start, some background information about the Korean Drama – Yoon Se-Ri (Son Ye-Jin) is a heiress to a conglomerate in South Korea and one day, she accidentally landed in North Korea while she went paragliding. In North Korea, she meets Ri Jeong-Hyeok (Hyun-Bin) who is a North Korean army officer, who tries to hide and protect her and trying to get Se-Ri back save to South Korea. As you can imagine, they fall in love…

Crash Landing on You became one of the highest-rated drama in Korean TV history and I can truly believe that there are many people from Asia, who can’t wait to travel again to see the beautiful Swiss scenery, which appears partially during the episodes. Yes, those breathtaking locations actually exists in real life and they can be visited. To be honest, I have never heard about this Korean Drama before and my mum literally forced me to watch it and showed me the trailer many many times, lol! I give it a try by watching the first episode and my mum was totally right, the drama is super heart touching (you will cry a lot – at least I did, but in a good way) and it has just the perfect mix of romance, family and friendship.

In this blog post, I will show you my personal Crash Landing on You itinerary, trying to capture most of the filming location of Switzerland in two days, starting from Lucerne. If you are coming from abroad, I would even recommend you to start from Zurich city, so you can cover even more movie spots like the Lindenhof, Münsterbrücke, Schweizer Heimatwerk and the famous train scene episodes of Yoon Se-Ri and Seo Dan. If you are interested or even planning to see all of the Swiss shooting locations, I listed them all up per episode at the end of this post. I hope this blog post will be helpful for your next Crash Landing on You movie-themed vacation in Switzerland – if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below. Take care everyone and happy travelling!
