This is where the future is created. Medienstadt Babelsberg is one of the world’s most innovative hotspots for media, IT and science!


Here in Medienstadt, crea­ti­vi­ty and exper­ti­se come tog­e­ther in the most inti­ma­te set­ting ima­gi­nable. It is only a few steps from film pro­duc­tion (Studio Babelsberg) to TV pro­duc­tion (UFA), from sci­ence (Film University) to public ser­vice broad­ca­sting (RBB) and enter­tain­ment (Filmpark Babelsberg). Medienstadt is THE place for inno­va­ti­on in the heart of Babelsberg, at the gates of the cos­mo­po­li­tan city Berlin. Here in Medienstadt you can expe­ri­ence the future: crea­ti­on, pro­duc­tion, rese­arch or living — Medienstadt is “the place to be”!


More than 140 com­pa­nies, and the total is gro­wing rapid­ly, pool their crea­ti­vi­ty, inno­va­ti­ve strength and talent right here. Cinema and TV-pro­du­cers, pro­vi­ders of ani­ma­ti­on, stunts and spe­cial effects, post­pro­duc­tion ser­vices, high-tech and mul­ti­me­dia com­pa­nies as well as pri­va­te and public broad­ca­sters with their pro­duc­tion faci­li­ties form a uni­que clu­ster with edu­ca­tio­nal, sci­en­ti­fic and rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons. This media com­pe­tence is par­ti­cu­lar­ly evi­dent in the fact that the MediaTechHub is head­quar­te­red at Medienstadt.


An area of 47 hec­ta­res or 16 acres with 21 ful­ly equip­ped stu­di­os, in addi­ti­on to Europe’s only volu­metric stu­dio and the lar­gest vir­tu­al film set as a fixed LED instal­la­ti­on: Germany’s most modern stu­dio com­plex is loca­ted here. The famous Marlene-Dietrich-Halle is one of the lar­gest stu­dio spaces in Europe and has an illu­s­trious heri­ta­ge. This is whe­re the next gene­ra­ti­on of crea­ti­ves and IT spe­cia­lists stu­dy at Germany’s first film uni­ver­si­ty and the Hasso-Plattner Institute. Modern housing, stu­dent apart­ments, child­ca­re faci­li­ties and schools enhan­ce the loca­ti­on. Everything is within easy reach thanks to bus, sub­ur­ban and regio­nal train con­nec­tions.
