Paths of Glory location: Schloss Schleissheim, Munich

Paths Of Glory location: the ‘French’ chateau: Schloss Schleissheim

Set in 1916 ‘France’, Stanley Kubrick’s powerful wartime drama was made at the Geiselgasteig Studio, south of Munich, before the director settled down to make his films almost entirely in the UK.

The vast ‘French’ chateau, in which the court martial is held, is the Neues Schloss of Schloss Schleissheim, housing the Bayerische Staatsgalerie collection of baroque art. Find it to the northwest of Munich, on the S-1 urban line and the 292 bus to Oberschleissheim.

1957 seems to have been a good year on-screen for Schloss Schleissheim, which also provided the exteriors for Alain Resnais’ influential L’Année Dernière à Marienbad (Last Year in Marienbad).
