The Castle Exterior Scenes
Stirling Castle, Castle Esplanade | Stirling, Scotland | United Kingdom
Due to difficulties in filming in Germany during the time of production, many of the Castle exterior scenes were filmed at Stirling Castle in Scotland. The castle has many resemblances to the real Colditz. If you're in Scotland then this is a beautiful Castle to visit. There are guided and audio tours available along with their special History Hunter tours specifically designed for children between ages 5 and 12 though all ages are welcomed. There is much to see including The Great Hall, The Royal Palace, The Chapel Royal and the Queen Anne Gardens to name just a few.
Stirling Castle is situated in the city of Stirling in central Scotland accessible via international airports Edinburgh or Glasgow and both Bus and Train. Full details including events, opening times and ticket prices can be found on the official Stirling Castle website;
