Filming in Bavaria

Whether romantic castle or enchanted castle ruins, whether fascinating natural scenery or derelict industrial sites: you have the story, Bavaria the filming locations.

As the Film Commission, we have built up a Bavaria-wide network of contacts over the years who support local film productions with the aim of opening up the whole of Bavaria for filming. 

Since 2014, there has also been the Filmkulisse Bayern location initiative, a joint project of BAYERN TOURISMUS Marketing GmbH and the Film Commission Bayern to network the film and tourism industries. 

The primary goal here is also the further expansion of the network, which combines the competencies and opportunities of both industries in the best possible way in order to strengthen the film location and the tourism state of Bavaria.

We support filmmakers throughout Bavaria in all phases of production:

  • Motif search
  • Filming permits
  • Accommodation, other logistical services
  • Online database with possible (public) film locations at:
  • Organization of location tours, scouting tours
