For many years, Germany has been a good host for many blockbuster-tier productions from around the world. The country can offer a wealth of locations including vast forests, rivers and mountain ranges, old-period architecture, modern cities, and sporting venues. To name some of the movies: “The Bourne Trilogy”, “Captain America: Civil War”, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” It’s clear how vast the locations Germany can offer for any genre of films. The permitting process is also very well organized, our team can get you the permit in 5-7 working days and take your production off the ground.

Filming Locations in Germany
With its diverse scenery that you can choose from the given locations, no matter what your next film production is about, Germany has got you covered. From the busiest city in Berlin that many spy-thriller films love to shoot to the quiet countryside where a genre-blending Nazi film; “Inglourious Basterds” by Quentin Tarantino was set. If you’re looking forward to bringing your production to Germany, you’re headed in the right direction.
Berlin is the capital and the largest city in Germany by both area and population. It is the busiest and most crowded city and has been the house for many spy-thriller films such as “The Bourne Trilogy”, “John Wick Chapter 4”, and “Mission: Impossible III.” However, a sense of suspense and tension can also be captured from the city, like the one from “The Queen’s Gambit”, an acclaimed limited series from Netflix starring Anya Taylor-Joy. The Series used Berlin in replace of many countries around the world from New York, Paris, Moscow, and Las Vegas, to Mexico City.
Porto might be the second largest city, but it’s probably the most popular city in Portugal. Judging by the fact that it was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996, many of the landscapes that would be avaliable for your film productions are second to none. The DC’s blockbuster film “Suicide Squad” by James Gunn starring Magot Robbie and Idris Elba once filmed in this city as the set.
Leipzig, another city in the eastern part of Germany, has been known as a trade city since at least the time of the Holy Roman Empire. “Captain America: Civil War” was shot their most iconic fight scene between team Cap and team Ironman at the airport here, in Leipzig Airport.
Brandenburg is a state that surrounds the national capital and city-state of Berlin. Most parts of the city are old medieval buildings combined with modernist buildings. However, we would recommend more of the countryside of the city like Werder. “Inglorious Basterds” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” were shot in this state.
Gorlitz is the easternmost town in Germany and lies opposite Poland. It’s a small town but it once was the host for Wes Anderson’s film “The Gran Budapest Hotel” which used the abandoned Gorlitzer Warenhaus Department Store as the main set of the hotel.
