All about Babylon Berlin

The 20s in Berlin

Berlin as a protagonist of the series

The city of Berlin plays an important role in the series. Director Achim von Borries said: "The city of Berlin is clearly the focal point of our series. In 1929, Berlin was international, magical, a cosmopolitan capital that attracted people all around the world. It was a real challenge to create Berlin in the late 1920s. The Neue Berliner Strasse, designed by our production designer Uli Hanisch for Babelsberg studio, made it possible for us to film street scenes from various parts of Berlin."
