The emotional final scene of Crash Landing on You, where Se-ri is inside a wooden chalet overlooking a shimmering emerald lake framed by the Alps, and we see Jeong-hyeok appearing with flowers in his hand, was filmed at Lungern Lake.

Lake Lungern is one of the most beautiful and special lakes in Switzerland.

Pier in Iseltwald and Lake Brienz
One of the most emotional scenes in the series takes place on this wooden pier in the charming village of Iseltwald, by the shores of Lake Brienz. We see Ri Jeong-hyeok playing the piano there. The same lake is where Yoon Se-ri is in a boat, listening to the melody of the piano without knowing it’s her beloved playing.

Lake Brienz is one of the lakes in the Interlaken region and one of the most beautiful in Switzerland. Along its shores, there are several small villages to visit, and a boat ride is a must.

Panoramabrücke Sigriswil
The suspension bridge in Sigriswil, near the city of Thun in the Interlaken region, appears in episode 4. Jeong-hyeok is taking photos and encounters Se-ri, a complete stranger to him at the time, just as she contemplates suicide by jumping off the bridge. He asks her to take a picture of him with his fiancée Seo-dan. Se-ri, though nervous and trembling, fulfills his request.

The bridge offers a stunning view of Lake Thun and the Bernese Alps.
