The glacier-crafted landscape of the Kaunertal used as a film set for big cinemas from Europe and Hollywood
Location scouts for film productions and advertising agencies describe the landscape, easily accessed by the Kaunertal Glacier Road, as: “For me, it is always fascinating how the landscape changes from the valley to the glacier. Whether I'm looking for a Tibetan landscape, or for a Scottish highland moor, or a backdrop for Alaskan scenes – here I can find everything!”
The winter scenes and avalanches for the Hollywood film Triple X featuring Vin Diesel were filmed on the north-west slope of the Nörderberg. Who remembers the scenes in this trailer?Trailer auf YouTube
JAMES BOND – SPECTRE
Parts of the chase scene on the high mountain road in the James Bond film Spectre featuring Daniel Craig were shot from the Gepatschhaus looking down on the Kaunertal Glacier Road towards the Gepatsch reservoir. Who knows the lake in this trailer?Trailer auf YouTube
The scenes in the snowstorm in the German film Bergkristall by director Joseph Vilsmaier were filmed in the rear Kaunertal near the Gepatschhaus and the Fernergarten.Trailer auf YouTube
TV series such as ‘Der Bergdoktor' or ‘Die Bergretter’ regularly film the winter scenes in Kaunertal.
So you might well meet your favorite star – maybe actor Hans Sigl, Sebastian Ströbel or Laura Cuenca Seerano – here in the winter wonderland of the glacier.
