Your walking tour through the media world

Filmstadt Guided Tour: original scenery!

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.


Duration approximately 90 minutes

The magical setting from the feature film "The Magic Flute"

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.

From silent film to TV-event

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.

Shoot your own film, get your souvenir


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.


„Das Boot“: a true blockbuster


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 impressive space station from the science fiction thriller "Stowaway" is now part of the Filmstadt tour


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.

Elyas M’Barek's classroom

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.

Scenery road with a new face


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.
