The Wilder Kaiser area is a popular destination. Including for film crews.
Did you know that the Wilder Kaiser area is the setting for the famous German-language TV series “Der Bergdoktor” (the mountain doctor)? The cult series has now been shown on the channels ZDF and ORF for over 10 years and reaches on average over seven million viewers per episode. Filming for the new season takes place on location every summer. There are 15 seasons – and counting! Famous filming locations in the Wilder Kaiser area are Gruberhof, Hintersteiner lake, or the “Bergdoktor” practice.
“Bergdoktor” fans find it especially thrilling to visit these places and – with a little luck and planning – even meet the actors during their summer film shoot. This meeting is organised by the “Bergdoktor” fan club every year.
If you’re interested in joining the meeting or visiting the film set, get in touch with us here at Das Alpin, one of the cosiest hotels in Scheffau, Austria. We’ll be glad to help and can give you even more interesting tips about the “Bergdoktor” series.
