Where does the movie willy wonka and the chocolate factory take place?

Although Charlie is from England, the setting of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory is intentionally ambiguous to give the factory a fantasy-like feel. This is consistent with Roald Dahl’s establishment of a setting in the novel. Most of the filming for the 1971 movie took place in Munich, West Germany. The opening sequence was filmed at a Tobler factory in Switzerland. The 2005 film was mainly filmed at the Pinewood Studios in England.
