The Bourne Identity (1988)

dir. Roger Young

This only covers the Swiss and French part of the film. Some Paris sequences were actually filmed in Nice or even London. Except the establishing shots, the New York sequences were also filmed in London.

Jason Bourne (Richard Chamberlain) arrives in Zurich – Zurich Hauptbahnhof, Bahnhofplatz, Zurich, Switzerland.

"Carillon du Lac" Hotel in Zurich – St. Ermin’s Hotel, 2 Caxton Street, London SW1. Appropriately enough, this stately hotel was headquarters to covert operations during World War II.

"Gemeinschaft Bank" – Römerhof, Römerhofplatz, Zurich, Switzerland. This is not a bank, and the building hosts the lower terminus of the Dolderbahn rack railway.

Marie running away from Bourne and unwittingly accepts a lift from the assassins – Lindenhofstrasse at Oetenbachgasse, Zurich, Switzerland.
