Six decades of company history and a cult series that is still cherished today gave the film production company on Sunday two reasons to make the “Castle on Lake Wörthersee” a meeting place for celebrities.

In 1964, Paul Loinger founded Lisa Film GmbH, named after his wife. Karl Spehe joined him three years later and paved the way for a portfolio that now includes more than 300 film productions, which are known, among other things, as Wörthersee films – primarily comedies set around the body of water of the same name in Carinthia. Austria.

In the 1980s, popular classics such as “Piratensender Powerplay”, “Die Supernasen” and “Zwei Nasen Tanken Super” with Thomas Gottschalk and Mike Krueger were also credited to Lisa Film, before the focus of the works gradually shifted towards television. The most famous document of this era is undoubtedly “Castle on Lake Wörthersee”, a series produced for RTL about the idyllic Schloßhotel Velden.

Despite having only 34 episodes spread over three seasons, the series, which first starred Roy Black and then O'Shea Glass, is sometimes revered in a cult following to this day.
