Filming Locations in Switzerland

Whether the production that you bring with you is a small personal production or a full-length feature film, Switzerland can offer you many scenery options as seen in blockbuster-level films.
Talking about the locations in Switzerland, the Swiss Alps should be included on your shot list. The infamous alps can be seen almost everywhere you go in Switzerland. It’s the part that embodies everything beautiful about Switzerland and it has been used in many Bond films from the old ones like “The Spy Who Loved Me” to the new ones like “GolddenEye.” This location would make your winter film production a masterpiece.
This famous city is home to so many beautiful buildings and architecture-designed buildings. Scenes like this would look great on any type of commercial ad or feature film. This is where “The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo” starring Rooney Mara took place, the scene where Elizabeth stayed in a 5 stars hotel in Zurich and the Zurich Airport also appeared in the film. Even Jason Bourne visited the city in “The Bourne Identity.”
Geneva is a stunning example of culture and beauty. Its cosmopolitan appeal is perfect for filming European-style movies, or large-scale western productions. Many blockbuster films took place here in Geneva like “The Wolf of Wall Street”, “Snowden”, and “Syriana”.
In Walensee, you have choices from a lakeshore view of Lake Walenstadt, a landscape field of a Weesen, Quinten, Quarten, and Murg town to an alpine view of the Swiss Alps. Walensee is where one of the most impressive stunts scene from “Point Break (2015)” was filmed with a wing suit-flying stunt crew.
Grindelwald is a village famous for its ski hills, which was used as a background for the planet Alderaan in “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.” This location would be perfect for any winter collection or winter sports commercial or you use it to act as another planet in your sci-fi film like Star Wars did.
