The Augsburg in the movie is a very alienated version of the real Augsburg, located in Bavaria, Germany. Nevertheless, when the movie started in cinemas in Augsburg, the real mayor of Augsburg appeared in a short clip before the movie and told the audience that he instruct Hänsel and Gretel to take care of the witch problem in the city.

I see you got my invitation.
Say your name before my arrows rip out your throat.
I go by many names. None of which you are worthy of pronouncing.

I can understand the movies poor reception and reviews however its one of those movies which you can't help but enjoy anyway. Its extremely fast, witty and has an unprecedented amount of gore. The action is plenty full and it has a simple storyline that plays on a classic fairytale. Although it has a serious tone it doesn't take itself seriously. Instead we get a fun, gruesome and entertaining action/horror movie. Arterton and Renner are strong in there roles and the witches are imaginative but familiar. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunter makes good use of its cast, creates some bloody mess all in a really fantasied and exacerbated 19th century.
