Some couples like to cook together while others like to work out.

Robin Lachhein, 31, and Judith Schneider, 30, from Hofheim, Germany, have a slightly more involved hobby: They travel the world together re-creating famous movie and television serial scenes.

They post images of their amazing recreations to their Instagram page, Secret Famous Places, which has amassed a following of more than 20,000 people.

Among the scenes they have recreated are the dancing scene from La La Land in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, a scene from romantic comedy P.S I Love You and from the blockbuster hit Game of Thrones.

Keep scrolling to see some of their favourite shots so far.

Robin and Judith travelled to Cathy's Corner in Griffith Park, Los Angeles and recreated the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's dancing scene from the 2016 film La La Land.
Judith, who's a journalist, when asked about their project, was quoted as saying: "Six years ago, we were deciding where to go on holiday and we decided it would be fun to go to filming locations. But rather than just go to them, we decided to recreate scenes to prove it was actually the right location. We didn't really think it would work, but we just gave it a try and it worked better than we thought!". Photograph: SaceretFamousPlaces/Instagram

The couple recreate the famous scene from Game of Thrones featuring Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) at the real-life filming location of Gaztelugatxe - an islet off the coast of Northern Spain.

To recreate this scene featuring Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mr Big (Chris Noth) from the series finale of Sex and the City, the pair headed to the real-life filming location of Pont des Arts in Paris.
When it comes to choosing movie locations, they say they're picky. "We always think it should be a good movie or a good TV series, we don't want to take a picture of a scene from a movie that's not good," Lachhein said. Photograph: SaceretFamousPlaces/Instagram

On a trip to Ireland, the pair ventured to the Wicklow Mountains to recreate this scene from the romantic comedy P.S I Love You, starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.
What they love about their project the most is exploring places in a unique way: seeing things that not every tourist sees, and visiting slightly more off-the-beaten-path locations. Photograph: SaceretFamousPlaces/Instagram

The couple channel their inner Richard Gere and Julia Roberts to recreate a scene from Pretty Woman at the Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain in Grand Park, Los Angeles.
The couple stress that they pay for everything themselves and don't earn any money from their pictures. They try to avoid Photoshop as much as possible so that the photos are a true depiction of the location, but admit to occasionally using filters and/or altering colours in order to enhance an image.
