A metropolis in turmoil. From economy to culture, politics to the underworld - everything is in the grip of radical change. Speculation and inflation are already tearing away at the foundations of the still young Weimar Republic. Growing poverty and unemployment stand in stark contrast to the excesses and indulgence of the city's night life and its overflowing creative energy.

Trivia

Production designer Uli Hanisch paid homage to his famous colleague Ken Adam. Adam was born in Berlin as Klaus Hugo and was a Jew. His father, Fritz Adam, was a department store owner and had to flee the Nazis in 1934, but certain things had to be left behind. Among them plans for a huge shopping mall, which Hanisch now used for the film set. On the Art Deco facade can therefore be seen Adam & Sons. See more »

What a first Season!!
16 October 2017 | by ulrikehbSee all my reviews

Hard to believe, but one of the best series of the year comes from Germany! The many years of effort by the makers to make this series possible has more than paid off. "Babylon Berlin" appeals to all the senses, tears its audience into an emotional whirlpool and captivates in every scene. Great scripts, fantastic sets and pictures and a great ensemble. Thank you for this great trip - and more of it, please!The Setting the performer the Music the Lights the Camera everything is amazing! Absolutely must LOOK!!! The best German TV Series ever! Cant wait for Season2.
