The corner house "Brauner Hirsch" is one of the most popular film locations in the city. Many film crews have already been guests in the otherwise empty building for filming. The historic building shows its strengths especially in interior shots: old pharmacy ("The Sorcerer's Apprentice"), inn ("Young Karl Marx"), hotel ("The Captain"), scholars' room ("Measuring the World") - everything seems possible.

After it had already served as a backdrop for exterior shots for the films "Rosenemil", "The Reader" and "Käthe Kruse", what is probably Germany's most beautiful department stores' became a real star as Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel".
