Film City Hamburg

Hamburg film history you can touch

National and international film and television productions are as much a part of Hamburg as the Michel or the harbour. In almost 100 years of Hamburg's film history, the city has often been the backdrop for great actors such as Heinz Rühmann and Til Schweiger.

FROM CLASSICS TO WORLD PREMIERES Hamburg Film Festivals

ROLL THE FILM! Film locations in Hamburg

Hamburg's various facets again and again serve as film backdrops for cinema and TV productions. The city is popular among filmmakers because the city's different motifs can tell a wide variety of stories. As early as 1919 the film "Die Spinnen" (The Spiders) was shown in Hagenbeck's zoo. Rathaus Schlump parts of Heinz Rühmann's parade film "Der Hauptmann von Köpenick" were shot and Thomas Mann's family biography "Die Buddenbrooks" was also staged in Hamburg. All Hans Albers films made especially St. Pauli and the Reeperbahn famous, but also contained scenes in Sagebiels Fährhaus in Blankenese. Film scenes from Fatih Akin's "Soul Kitchen" (2009) take place in a factory building in Wilhelmsburg and the Astra Stube at the Sternbrücke. The best example of national popularity among filmmakers are the first Tatort episodes with Til Schweiger, which not only show the Elbphilharmonie, but also reveal the outstanding view from one of the luxury apartments in the Marco Polo Tower.

This bar was called Astra-Stube when our granddads were going there. At the end of the 1990s, a live music venue was opened at the same location, however.

The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is truly building of superlatives and has set itself the goal of becoming one of the ten best concert halls in the world. The fact that it has the best chances to get there is not only due to the spectacular architecture, but also to the unique acoustics.
