The Filmmuseum in Breite Straße, part of the Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF Film University, brings the making of films to life, from the script to the film. Perfect for immersing yourself in film history and a good starting point for the film tour. In the area surrounding the museum, you can already find many motifs from the earlier Fridericus Rex films of the 1920s – such as the Lustgarten and the Old or New Market. Otto Gebühr played the great Prussian king so lifelike that the people of Potsdam greeted him on the street as Friedrich. The Nikolai Church on the Alter Markt can be seen in the movie "The Wave" and if you walk further into the city center, you will reach the Dutch Quarter – a popular motif from the series "SOKO Potsdam", "Jerks" or even "Homeland". Children may also recognize the neighborhood from "Hexe Lili". A detour to the town hall on Friedrich-Ebert-Strasse is a must for crime fans. The building appears in "Polizeiruf 110" and "Pfarrer Braun," among others. The tour continues through Hegelallee and Brandenburger Straße to Sanssouci Park. This has always been a popular setting. Konrad Wolf filmed "I was 19" in the New Chambers as early as 1968, and Hollywood moved the Orangery Palace to Istanbul for "Around the World in 80 Days." Those with tired feet after this film-worthy walk can take bus 695 back to the city center or to the main train station.
