Flake: The Viking village in Kochel am See

A place where "strong men" live: This is where the children's film "Wickie und die starken Männer" (Wickie and the strong men) was filmed in 2008.

In the summer of 2008, German director Michael Herbig filmed the motion picture "Wickie und die starken Männer" (Wicki and the strong men) on the banks of Lake Walchen. One section of the film set village "Flake" was retained intact. The site includes some Viking houses as well as eleven information boards about the Viking era. Finding your way to the village can sometimes be a bit tricky: it is situated right on the lake between the sunbathing meadow of Café Bucherer (Seestraße 1) and the water rescue service building.
