For ten days every year, the film industry looks to Berlin for the Berlinale – the city’s famous international film festival. Around 400 films from around the world premiere during the Berlinale. Further to this, movie stars and celebrities descend on the capital.
This year marks the 66th Berlinale, and to commemorate it, we’ve put together a guide to Berlin’s film history. We will look at everything from 1930 to the present day. From independent films like the 2015 hit Victoria to international blockbusters like The Bourne Supremacy and Inglourious Basterds.
Take a look at our interactive guide showing the locations of thirty-one films set or shot in Berlin. Then scroll down to download maps covering Berlin Neighbourhoods on Film, Berlin Landmarks on Film and West Berlin on Film. With our help you can explore the locations in real life.
Whether you live in Berlin, you’re visiting for the festival, or you’re just a good old-fashioned film buff, you should find something to interest you – and perhaps get some ideas and inspiration for some Berlinale-related film viewings.
