The Glattfelden film studios were the largest film studios in Switzerland . The pure studio space was 3,800 m² and extended over two halls of a former spinning mill from the 1950s, which served as a warehouse and workshop during the 1980s and 1990s and were converted to make films suitable for C-Films AG in 1999. The halls were chosen because they were large, column-free and in a low-noise environment.

From 1999 to 2007, the studios mainly housed the largest Swiss TV soapLüthi und Blanc ”, which filled almost the entire studio. In previous years, the television series “Flamingo” or the television film “For or Flame” as well as various commercials were shot in Glattfelden . From April to October 2008, the doctor series “ Day and Night ” was created in Glattfelden .

After C-Films had to close the studios in April 2009 for lack of new productions, the buildings were demolished in April 2010. Condominiums, attic apartments and lofts have been built on the site. Until then, there was also the rest of the Swiss Big Brother container, which was used by TV3 in 2000 and 2001 .

C-Films AG offered guided tours and events in the studios during operating hours. In the past, around 8,000 visitors per year received an insight into the world of Swiss television and film production.
