The Atlantic Kempinski as it can be seen in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
In July 1997 Tomorrow Never Dies’ director Roger Spottiswoode, Pierce Brosnan, Gotz Otto and some 150 crew members stayed in the Atlantic for the location shooting in Hamburg. In the film the hotel is introduced by a night-shot of its unmistakable emblem that decorates its façade like a figure-head on the bow of a gigantic ocean liner.

Standing on the roof of the opposite Ibis Hotel, Carver’s henchman Stamper observed Bond’s arrival.
The roof of the Atlantic Kempinski
The interior scenes of Bond’s hotel room were shot in the ballroom of the Stoke Poges Golf Club near London.
After leaving Paris Carver, Bond runs over a catwalk along some flagpoles. This was on the roof of the hotel.

After disposing of the murderous Dr Kaufman 007 steps onto the balcony of the Atlantic Suite. From here he scales up a ladder to the Atlantic sign on the roof. This ladder was specially constructed and brought into position on the suite’s balcony just for the filming. From the sidewalk you can still see two of the holes where it was screwed to the wall.
