Produced Film Projects
Who knows that the majority of the settings for historic films such as "The Physician" and "Pope Joan" emerged at the Querfurt Castle? Likewise, Til Schweiger filmed his "1 1/2 Ritter” (1 ½ Knights) at the castle grounds. Well-known ARD and ZDF fairy tales like “Die Zertanzten Schuhe” (The Twelve Dancing Princesses) or "Jorinde and Joringel" also have used the medieval castle as filming location.
