Germany: The Grand Budapest HotelKaufhaus Görlitz: The Lobby
Share this on:
The Art Nouveau style of the Kaufhaus Görlitz was the perfect setting for The Grand Budapest Hotel's lobby. And, as luck had it, the building was not in use at the time of filming in 2013. In fact, it's still empty now, but you can visit the ground floor on Friday afternoons.
The interior is instantly recognisable - you literally step into The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The city of Görlitz has a dedicated website to the various movies made in their city - which they've affectionately named Görliwood.
