Over 3,000 films have been shot at the famous Babelsberg UFA/DEFA studios, including Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927). The themepark surrounding the studios is great for children and adults. Though the topics may be unfamiliar to foreigners, there's enough action to keep you amused, including stunt, animal and pirate shows, studio tours and 'behind the scenes' insights into special effects through the years. There's an English-language audioguide too. From Babelsberg S-Bahn station take bus N°601 or 690; alternatively take the RE train to Medienstadt Babelsberg station and walk.
