How do real film professionals work? During your Guided Tour, which takes about 90 minutes throughout the 300 000 square meter media campus, your tourguide will help you discover the most exciting aspects of film making. You will see original scenery, for example the real film adaption of the corresponding bestseller „Jim Button and Luke the Enginge Driver“ by Michael Ende and the new adventure "Jim Button and the Wild 13". Experience the movie set with Nepomuk, his volcano and the locomotive Emma.

Chanti is bäck! Who doesn't remember Chantal from class 10b, an intellectual underdog with a big heart and an even bigger make-up collection? In FACK JU GÖHTE, she proclaimed herself a female audience favourite in three films with her endearingly chaotic manner and achieved absolute cult status. Now Chantal, eternal influencer without followers, has been given her own stage in the cinema film "Chantal im Märchenland".
The opulent bedchamber and the magical mirror from the fairytale world into which Chantal and her friend Zeynep are unintentionally catapulted can only be seen in the Bavaria Filmstadt. Let yourself be enchanted and find out exciting details about the new cinema film by the successful duo Bora Dagtekin (director) and Lena Schömann (producer).
The German series "Die Rosenheim-Cops" is simply cult. For over 20 years, millions have been enthralled by the murder investigations in Rosenheim. Also because everyone in the fictitious Rosenheim police department contributes to solving the cases in their own unique way, including secretary Miriam Stockl and police officer Michi Mohr. Now you can recreate two short scenes from the hit series in front of the camera. You take on the roles of the police officers, immediately start investigating and try to track down the murderer. You can purchase your short thriller later in the Filmstadt Shop and take it home with you as a souvenir.
For the international film production "The Magic Flute" directed by Florian Sigl, the professionals of the Bavaria Art Department built magical backdrops. After filming was completed at the Geiselgasteig media location, we took over Monostatos' room in Sarastro's palace for the Filmstadt tour.
The story of "The Magic Flute" revolves around what is probably the world's best-known and most popular opera, "The Magic Flute" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Cast and crew of the international top-class fantasy film are shooting in Salzburg, London and on the Canary Islands. The film is scheduled for release at the end of 2022.
Filming has been taking place at the Geiselgasteig media location since 1919. Immerse yourself in a cinematic journey through the more than 100-year history of the company and the productions that have been made - from the first silent films, to lavish film classics with a large star cast, science fiction productions, cult crime series, and popular long-running series. Meet familiar faces who wrote film history(s) in front of and behind the camera.
If you want to be a filmstar yourself, show off your talent in front of the camera at our several experience stations, for example in our visual effects studio. By the way, of course you are able to purchase your short movies directly after the Guided Tour.
One of the internationally most known movie is the classic „Das Boot“ based on Lothar Günther Buchheim’s novel. During your Guided Tour you will see the original-U96-setting, in which Wolfgang Petersen was directing the most important scenes of his magnificent movie in 1981. Learn everything, starting from the thrilling shooting to the TV event „Das Boot", a SKY produced series.
The ISS served as the model for the backdrop from the cinema film "Stowaway". Now the walk-in space station is part of the Filmstadt tour. It was built last year for the science fiction thriller produced in the Bavaria Studios. Director Joe Penna staged the story of a journey to Mars during which a stowaway is discovered, with Anna Kendrick as the doctor and Toni Collette as the commander. The film is scheduled to be released in cinemas in 2021.
Also being presented in the Guided Tour: Germany’s coolest classroom. The original scenery from the „Fack ju Göhte“-trilogy, Germany’s most successful movie series of all time. This classroom was essentially characterised by the cult sentence: „Chantal, heul leise!“ Here Elias M’Barek alias Zeki Müller brings the chaotic class back on track. He helped the classroom of the fictitious Goethe-comprehensive school become famous and reached an audience of millions.
After the completion of filming for the high-end series "Luden" by "Neuesuper" (in early 2023 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video), the 3,400 sqm Scenery Street of the media location was reopened to visitors*. The formerly bourgeois house facades of the early 20th century gave way to typical establishments, nightclubs, discos and bars of Hamburg's Reeperbahn of the 80s.
