South Tyrolean film locations

The region is full of beautiful places that have been shown in various films - even in Hollywood productions

South Tyrol's beautiful landscape and nature has also attracted film-makers, who incorporate the region's unique places, mountains and valleys into their productions from time to time. Among them are numerous lakes: Lake Resia with its sunken church tower, where the Netflix series "Curon" (2020) was filmed, the Monticolo Lakes, the setting for the Italian movie "La befana vien di notte" with Paola Cortellesi (2018), and the Neves Reservoir, where Latvia's first western "Where the Road leads" by Matīss Kaža (2020) was filmed. The most famous, however, is and remains Lake Braies in the Val Pusteria valley, where the extremely popular TV series "Un passo dal cielo" with Don Matteo alias Terrence Hill was realised for years.

The Val Senales valley - along with towns like Bolzano and Merano - is also popular for film scenes. Especially the rugged surroundings of the Val Senales Glacier inspired filmmakers to shoot here e.g. "Everest" with Jake Gyllenhaal or "Siberia" with William Dafoe. "The Red Cup", the spin-off of the famous Hollywood saga Star Wars, on the other hand, shows some scenes that were realised at the Three Peaks in Alta Pusteria: Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson came to the location for it.
