Filming in Berlin
TV teams planning to film in Berlin will find some basic information below.
Berlin is a popular backdrop – for video clips, films, TV series, advertising and other formats. Even small journalistic film and photo teams, that carry out photo or film work on public streets in Berlin and Brandenburg, require a filming permit. Filming permits are provided by the relevant district offices and must be requested there.
The filming permit can be requested with this document.
Public streets and places include the following:
- Brandenburg Gate
- Reichstag (only external recordings are permitted here)
- Berlin Wall
Prior filming permits must also be obtained for all indoor filming or for filming on private property.
Detailed information on contact persons, suitable filming locations and motives can be found on the page of the Berlin Brandenburg Filmcommission. Further clues for filming in mini-teams are elaborated here.
