Friedrichstraße: Filming Location for “Victoria”
“Victoria”, the surprise success of Berlinale 2015, takes plays in one night in Berlin. The breath-taking story was filmed in a single shot without a cut, giving the movie its feverish energy and authentic Berlin look. To make this possible, the filming locations all lie close together.
The (fictional) club at the beginning of the film is located on Charlottenstraße (and is actually the beverage store). Friedrichstraße 226 is also in reality the convenience store whose owner also appeared in the film. Café Wilhelm & Medné is not far away on Hedemannstraße 14. The film ends with a dramatic scene in the Westin Grand Hotel at Friedrichstraße 158.
