Before Switzerland mountain scenes, songs in the snow and exquisite scenes of winter were earlier used to be shot in Kashmir. But sooner than never, when things went down politically there was a need for a new destination and hence Switzerland what we see in terms of tourism, Bollywood has a big role to play in it.

There are walking tours organised by local companies, one such company is Gstaad Saaneland who started this in 2017 on the recommendation of a few Indian travellers. Today, every season near about 500 Indian guests hop on to the most awaited tour of their journey.

A few renowned Bollywood films shot in Switzerland:


The famous then chocolate boy of Bollywood, the late Rishi Kapoor and the national crush of India, the late Sridevi starred in this film. Chandani is one such film which opened the gate for Switzerland through Bollywood. Most famous songs and half of the pictures have been shot in Lauenensee Lake, Jungfraujoch and the Bernese Alps. 

Chori Chori Chupke Chupke

The beauty of Lucerne lake can become surreal if you have seen this movie, which stars Salman Khan, Rani Mukherjee & Priti Zinta. From authentic scenes to acoustic songs everything was shot here and you can surely live the moment as you travel Switzerland through Bollywood 

Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge 

An evergreen love story and my all-time favourite film starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol were shot in Switzerland through Bollywood… Maybe it’s the location, songs and definitely the chemistry that made me fall in love with this film. In order to relive the cinematic moments just like Raj and Simran, you need to visit Lake Lundgren, Church St. Grat and the town of Saneen which is known for its green lush landscapes. 

Veer Zara 

Surprisingly this was a surprise for me too, that Veer Zara which is purely based on the love story of India & Pakistan has a scene shot in Switzerland The romantic song of Ye Hum Aa Gaye Kaha has been shot in Launen. Experience the bliss of the song while exploring Switzerland through Bollywood. 

Many more films have been shot in Switzerland directly or indirectly. I have just mentioned a few here.
