Bavaria Film Studios is the largest movie making studio in Europe and has a history that dates back to the 1920s. Alfred Hitchcock made his first movie, The Pleasure Garden, here in 1925. This is Munich's version of Universal studios, although admittedly on a much smaller scale than its counterpart in America.
Guided tours last 90 minutes and are offered in English and in German. The English tour starts at 1pm every day and takes visitors through film sets of famous movies such as The Neverending Story and the Sound of Music. During the tour, children can ride on the dragon from the Neverending Story, while adults can visit the submarine from Das Boot.
The film studio also runs a stunt show, set in a desolate street in New York City. This show provides an informative background into the stunt world, as well as an entertaining show for all guest regardless of their age.
A new "4D" cinema has also now opened, which totally immerses the visitor in the film through the use of wind, moving seats and 3D glasses.
Bavaria Film Studios is easily reached with Tram 25 towards Grünwald (station Bavariafilmplatz) and is open every day.
