Crash Landing on You (CLOY), the monster Korean Netflix hit series, tells the story of a South Korean heiress who accidentally lands in North Korea due to a paragliding mishap and falls in love with a North Korean army officer. The series – like many other famous Hollywood & Bollywood movies & films before – features many beautiful and scenic locations in Switzerland, especially in the Interlaken and Jungfrau region. Here is the ultimate list of all Swiss Crash Landing on You film locations, how to get there and why they are worth visiting for Netflix fans!
Swiss Crash Landing on You Film Locations
Being a Korean TV Netflix series it seems odd that a lot of it got filmed in Interlaken Switzerland. However if you consider that the story revolves around a paragliding mishap and add the fact that interlaken is the paragliding capital of the world it all suddenly makes sense. Find out below which epic (paragliding) film locations were used for this best watched non-English show on Netflix ever….
Iseltwald Village & Pier CLOY
This is a charming village on the shore of Lake Brienz, where the protagonists walk along the pedestrian area of Schorren, with Seeburg Castle in the background. This location appears four times in CLOY and is a great place to enjoy the lake view and the peaceful atmosphere. The Iseltwald pier is the most iconic film location of the entire series and it has gotten so popular with mainly Korean tourists that the local public transportation company had to add more buses to the schedule to cater for this demand. A 5chf entry fee has been enforced to somehow curtail the visits a little bit. Take bus number 103 from the Interlaken West or East (Ost) station to get there in around 25 minutes.
