Loved 'The NeverEnding Story'? You'll Be Excited About This

Released 32 years ago, fantasy / adventure film The NeverEnding Story tells the tale of a young boy called Bastian who reads a magical novel that details the story of brave young warrior called Atreyu.

It turns out poor Atreyu had the rather daunting task of stopping a dark storm called 'the nothing' from engulfing a fantasy world. It was a storyline that captured the imagination of millions of children around the world, a movie filled with all manner of weird and wonderful characters where anything seemed possible.

It made millions too, grossing around $100M at the box office on a production budget of just $27M. But what you might not have realized is the vast majority of the film was filmed in Germany. At the time it was the most expensive movie ever made in the country. A few minor scenes were shot in Almerín, Spain and even Vancouver, Canada but that aside it's been one of the most celebrated German movies of a generation.

Over in Munich and located at Bavaria Films (a place not dissimilar to Universal Studios) is an official tourist exhibit which features many of the props and original characters from the movie. Not only can you ride on the snail but perhaps most exciting of all, you can even hitch a ride on none other than Falkor himself.

Now what could be cooler than that?
