    The "Bavaria Filmstadt" (meaning "Bavaria Movie City") is a great attraction for tourists just south of Munich. Visit the home of movie stars and discover one of Europe's biggest film-making facilities.

    The Bavaria Filmstadt was founded in the early 1980s with an exhibition of original sets from two very famous movies directed by Wolfgang Petersen, "Das Boot" and "Die unendliche Geschichte." "Das Boot", is an highly renowned epic war film, and "Die unendliche Geschichte" ("The Neverending Story") is a cinematic interpretation of a fantasy novel by Michael Ende.

    The main attraction is still the movie tour, which begins with a short ride on a small railway and continues on by foot. Currently (as of November 2013) visitors can view the sets of the movies "Wickie und die starken Männer", "Die Wilden Kerle 5", "The Neverending Story", "Asterix und Obelix gegen Caesar", "Ludwig II" and "Das Boot"; also on display are sets from the German TV-series "Marienhof", "Löwengrube", "Sturm der Liebe" and "Der Alte".

    Don't forget to visit the "4D-Cinema" either. Here you'll watch a 3D movie with additional cool atmospheric effects like wind and fog.
