Alexander Golling visited Max Bayrhammer's theatre school in Munich. In 1924 he debuted on the stage and he worked in Leipzig and at the Volksbühne in Berlin. In 1933 he joined the NSDAP. From 1935 he appeared in movies as well, among them "Der Stählerne Strahl" (1935) and "Das Indische Grabmal" (1938). From 1938 to 1945 he managed the Bavarian Staatsschauspiele. He married the actress Annie Markart but they were divorced in 1941.

After the war it was difficult for him to find employment because he had been near to the nazi regime. He was imprisoned for a while at an American camp in near Schongau. Witnesses declared that he had frequently joined the drinking parties of Gauleiter Wagner at the Künstlerhaus in Munich. In the 1950s he returned to the stage and from that time he also appeared in television productions. At the end of his life he lived in Rottach-Egern in Bavaria where he died in 1989.
