Kärntnerhof as a movie theater
Since the early 1960s, the Wörthersee is a very popular location for cinema and TV productions. Hans Moser, Rudi Carell (often guest in the Kärntnerhof), Alain Delon, Ingrid Bergmann, Hildegard Knef, Heinz Hoenig, Udo Jürgens and Ottfried Fischer. He followed "You are the rose from Wörthersee", "When the music plays at Wörthersee" and many more.
Whether the "Supernasen" with Thomas Gottschalk and Mike Krüger (some scenes were shot at the Kärtnerhof), "Affectionate Chaots" with Helmut Fischer or "Tierärztin Christine" with Uschi Glas - they all played at and sometimes also on and in the Wörthersee. This is how an international starring role has been played by Ingrid Bergmann, Omar Sharif, Alain Delon and Shirley MacLaine in 1964 "The Yellow Rolls-Royce".
At the beginning of the nineties, the Wörthersee was the focus of three seasons of the well-known television series "Ein Schloß am Wörthersee", which gave Roy Black a terrific comeback.
Also the production "The Doctor from the Wörthersee", whose episodes were aired in 2007, fits seamlessly into these entertaining series.
For the Kinofilm "Kaiserschmarrn" (AT), which was shot at the Kärntnerhof, the Wörthersee stars, such as Grit Böttcher and Ilja Richter, returned to their old effect. The leading role in the film, which has now become a cult, is played by Antoine Monot jr. Also Heinrich Schafmeister, Hannes Jaenicke and Ottfried Fischer are to be seen in the Wörthersee comedy.
