The whole range of historical, architectural, natural and traditional landscapes makes Bavaria exceptional as a shooting location.

Especially the variety of palaces, castles and residences as well as the many magnificent court gardens, palace parks, gardens and lakes offer unique locations for historical shootings.


One of the most complex on-location productions which has taken place in Bavaria last year at such unique settings was LUDWIG II – a film about the dramatic retelling of the life of the famous King of Bavaria, one of the most fascinating monarchs of modern times.

The film production was able to shoot at the most extraordinary locations in Bavaria: the Castles Neuschwanstein, Herrenchiemsee and Linderhof – all of them were originally built by King Ludwig II. These world famous castles with their sumptuous artistic interiors attract over five million visitors annually from all over the world.


Due to the professional work of the Film Commission Bayern as well as the Bavarian Department of State-owned Palaces, Gardens and Lakes, the film production obtained access to these impressive and remarkable sites.

Although it might be a challenge for the entire film team to fulfill all the necessary requirements, shooting at original locations guarantees one of the most inestimable advantages: pure authenticity not only for historical films.
