Potsdam – Head Tour: On Thursday and Friday, the film “Spencer” will be shot at Marquardt Palace – with Kristen Stewart in the lead role. The American star was known for the vampire saga “Twilight”. Stewart is now playing the famous princess Diana in “Spencer”.
Castle manager Christian Schulz confirmed to PNN that the American film star and the film’s team should be on site for two days of shooting at Marquardt Palace.

Marquardt Castle is always a backdrop
“Our palace is a very popular film location,” Schulz said. Over the years, scenes from “Bridge of Spice”, a docudrama about the failed Hitler assassination, and music videos for Rottstein, Scooter and Andrea Berg have been filmed at the castle north of Potsdam. According to PNN information, an outdoor shooting at Marquardt Castle may be planned for a later date of “Spencer”.
