    From Wikipedia



    Filming commenced on 31 August 1970 and ended on 19 November 1970. The primary shooting location was Munich, because it was significantly cheaper than filming in the U.S., and the setting was conducive to Wonka's factory. Director Mel Stuart also liked the ambiguity and unfamiliarity of the location. External shots of the factory were filmed at the Munich Gaswerks; the flats and clocktower still exist. The closing sequence when the Wonkavator is flying above the factory is footage of N�rdlingen, Bavaria.
