Many scenes of the classic horror film "Nosferatu - Symphony of Horror" by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of its premiere this year, were shot in northern Germany in the early 1920s. The film was shot in Lübeck, among other places, and artists from the Lübeck City Theater took part in the film about the Count of Transylvania. Year after year, film enthusiasts pilgrimage to the historic salt warehouses on the Obertrave, where Nosferatu takes up quarters in the film to watch his next victim. The close-up of Nosferatu at the window is legendary. At the end of the anniversary year, an installation of the Nordic Film Days Lübeck in the public space now brings one of the most famous scenes in film history to life anew at its place of origin.
