    I am going to a road trip through southern parts (but not too south) of Europe and one thing (among others of course) I would like to do is to visit notable film photography related places.

    It can be a shop that (still) sells film, a lab, a factory etc.

    I am going through Switzerland, Northern Italy, Croatia and Hungary.

    While Ferrania is also located in Northern Italy, it is unfortunately too far away from my route, but I plan to see the area in Croatia where Fotokemika (Efke) plant was located.

    So if you know something interesting then please post. Does not necessarily have to be in the listed region.

    Maybe from Croatia, cross the border into Slovenia. In Celje, there is a beautiful, original daylight studio. It's now governed by the City Museum. Wet plate photographer Borut Peterlin has done lots of work in the studio.

    Not on your route, but as you are located in Luxembourg you should visit Antwerp anyway and by this have a (long) stroll around the Agfa plant plus a visit to the Lieven Gevaert memorial. There even is his mother's house were it all started.

    I had not noticed Luxembourg; have you been to the Family of Man at Clervaux Castle.

    Sure. I have also seen Steichen autochromes in Mudam.
