The most exciting series locations in Berlin - interactive map
Berlin - the series capital of Germany
Berliners have long known that the capital is more than just Currywurst and Berghain - the international film industry has long noticed this, too. You think that successful series are only shot in glamorous Hollywood and not in the dirty Berlin slab? No way! Berlin's diverse streetscape invites producers from all over the world to move the location of the action to the German metropolis. Whether it's Turkish bakeries in the multicultural district of Neukölln, magnificent villas in Grunewald or the hustle and bustle of Berlin in Mitte: What Berliners have loved about their city for years is also appreciated by the film industry.
Why is Berlin attractive as a film location for series?
You've probably seen street closures in your neighborhood for film shoots and production teams. No wonder: More than 4,000 film and TV productions take place in Berlin every year. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg in particular is a popular filming location due to its diverse architectural and social image and offers a veritable paradise of backdrops: Whether historical sites, socialist construction, clubs, bars or the hustle and bustle of Kotti - the district has it all.
Added to this is Berlin's proximity to the world-famous Babelsberg film studio. Timeless classics, such as Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella, Hollywood blockbusters like The Ghost Writer or The Tributes of Panem - Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2 or internationally successful series like Dark or Babylon Berlin found their backdrop in the Babelsberg film studios.
