Where was Fallout filmed? The Enclave, Filly, and all the series locations

Posted by

Based on the popular video game, Amazon's Fallout series was filmed primarily in Utah, New York, and New Jersey in the United States, as well as Namibia in Africa.

Featuring great filming locations, this long-awaited show has one of the largest budgets of any series ever released.

Ella Purnell as Lucy MacLean

Fallout is a post-apocalyptic fiction that takes place 219 years after the dreaded nuclear holocaust that Americans prepared for in the 1950s.

However, the story is not told in a depressing or serious way. In the series, everything is viewed with distance and a great sense of humor.

Here is our spoiler-free guide to (almost) all the filming locations of Fallout. You'll find the locations in order of appearance.

The Fallout locations

Fallout location
The Brotherhood of Steel headquarters was filmed at the former Wendover Air Force Base in in Utah.

This location has a real apocalyptic background: the base was the training center during World War II for the group that dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Wendover closed in 1969, but today the complex is open to the public as a museum, including the Enola Gay hangar, which preserves its significant role in history.

The Enclave in Fallout

Enclave Fallout
The Enclave where Dr. Siggi Wilzig (played by Michael Emerson) examines puppies was filmed in the Brooklyn Army Terminal Building in Sunset Park, New York City.

Built in 1919 in the Art Deco style, the building was a key military supply base during World War II.

Today, the building has been repurposed for various commercial and industrial uses, with tenants ranging from manufacturing companies to artists' studios.

Eduard Bohlen shipwreck
The desert scenes were filmed on location in Namibia, southwest Africa.

As Lucy (played by Ella Purnell) begins to explore the Wasteland, the shipwreck of the Eduard Bohlen appears.

This German cargo ship, which ran aground in 1909, has been partially buried by the shifting sands, creating an eerie and surreal sight and a popular tourist attraction.

Elizabeth Bay Ghost Town
The houses buried in the sand are the Elizabeth Bay Ghost Town, also on Namibia's Skeleton Coast.

Once a bustling diamond mining town, the settlement was abandoned in the late 20th century due to declining production and harsh desert conditions.

Visitors can explore the eerie remains of the town, including dilapidated buildings engulfed by sand, which are also featured in the third episode, "The Head".

Fallout house
The house of the man who wants to marry Lucy is the old accountant's house (Buchhalterhaus) in Kolmanskop, Namibia.

Located approximately 24 kilometers (about 15 miles) northeast of Elizabeth Bay, Kolmanskop (or Kolmannskuppe in its original German name) is a popular tourist destination, known for its well-preserved, partially buried buildings.

The scene of the Westside Medical Clinic in the fourth episode, "The Ghouls", was filmed at the old hospital or Krankenhaus.

The dangerous cave was filmed at the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale, NY.

This cement mine, known for its unique underground features, including large caverns and tunnels, was operated from the late 19th century until the early 20th century.

The Filly town in Fallout

Filly Fallout city
The entrance to the town of Filly was filmed in the Pine Barrens airplane and automobile graveyard in southern New Jersey.

Shady Sands Fallout
The Hollywood Boulevard scene with the gulper monster (modeled after an axolotl, a small, endangered Mexican amphibian) was filmed in a real location on the Hudson River near the hamlet of Verplanck.

The Cortlandt Quarry on the Hudson River was flooded with natural spring water, creating a stunning turquoise lake surrounded by submerged buildings and machinery.

Hollywood Forever Cemetery
The sixth episode, "The Trap", features the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, a historic burial ground in Los Angeles that is the final resting place of many Hollywood legends.

However, the series was not filmed at the actual location. The exterior, pictured, looks like a CGI image and the interior seems to be inspired by the Mountain View Mausoleum in Altadena.

Red Rocked gas station
The Red Rocked gas station in the seventh episode, "The Radio", is the Gulf Gas Station at the corner of Route 9W and Christian Herald Road in Nyack, Rockland County, NY.

After seeing that ship wrack, my first thought was that it was in Namibia (recognized it from the GT series), they did bit a traveling it seems, considering how far that ship is from the civilization in the middle of the desert.

Do you know the house in the 1st chapter? I couldn't find any information.

The house of the man who wants to marry Lucy in the desert is not the former hospital of Kolmannskuppe (although some other scenes have been shot inside of the hospital). Instead, it's the "Buchhalterhaus" which translates to accountant's house. I recognized it since I've been to Kolmannskuppe myself last year.

Another minor correction: The settlement is often called by its Afrikaans name "Kolmanskop" in English media although that's not the historically correct name which is "Kolmannskuppe" instead. The first version is the Afrikaans name, and the second the German.

But if you visit the town, you won't see any historic sign calling it by the Afrikaans name. That's because it was a German colony and the inhabitants were German too. The Afrikaans name was created later when South Africa took control over the colony of German South West Africa. But the inhabitants had never been Afrikaans speaking until the town became vacant and empty.
