Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Film Locations

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang & Willy Wonka are both classic cult films. They were filmed 3 years appart and both have one thing in common…They were both filmed in Germany. Only parts of Chitty were filmed in Germany while the entire film of Willy Wonka was filmed in & around Munich. Willy Wonka was filmed in Munich as it was a low budget film and Bavaria film studios was one of the cheapest places David Wolper productions could find in Europe that offered everything they required. They also chose Munich in the end as they wanted a european look as apposed to looking British or even American. In October 2011 we set out to Germany to find the original film locations of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory to find out just what made these real life locations our iconic fantasy places that have made their way into our cinematic history over 40 years ago. Here is a small documentary style video from our trip on the original Willy Wonka chocolate factory exactly 40 years on.
