Movies in the Mill

The Historic Mill. I strongly believe it’s not possible to put into words the feelings that this giant, white building evokes.

The thousands of windows, that allow rays of light to slip through, mixed up with tones of bronze, wood, and steel but also the mountain itself, can leave every visitor in awe. Apparently, the unique, industrial design of the Mill offers more than just beautiful views, but also the inspiration for many movie directors that stepped inside.

More than twenty movies have been filmed inside the historic Mill. Let’s take a look at some of my favourites!


  1. Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed – an impressive view of the exterior of the Mill No. 3!
