Dark filming locations in Germany
We recently discovered the filming locations for Netflix series’ The Queen’s Gambit and Dogs of Berlin, and now Dark has introduced us to the fictitious Germany town of Winden, which meant more sleuthing to discover where it was filmed in, and around, our favourite city Berlin.
Dark is a bit strange, to say the least, but persevere with it and you’ll be hooked. It’s a bit like Twin Peaks meets Stranger Things, with the story beginning with a teenager who has gone missing followed by a series of unexplained events in the small town of Winden.
