Eisenbahntraße · Berlin

“The Eisenbahnstraße (postal code 10997) is an approximately 480 meter long street in the Berlin district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, district Kreuzberg. It runs from the Lausitzer Platz on the Muskauer Straße and the Wrangelstraße to Köpenicker Straße and there turns into the Brommystraße.

The naming on May 22, 1852 goes back to the Berlin connection line, which led from 1852 to 1871 through the street. The Berliner Verbindungsbahn, a forerunner of the Ringbahn, linked the then five Berlin head stations with each other. The railway line through the Eisenbahnstraße connected the former Görlitzer Bahnhof (today Görlitzer Park) with the former Frankfurt train station (now Ostbahnhof) in Friedrichshain.

In the novel “Herr Lehmann” by Sven Regner lives the title character, the bartender Frank Lehmann, in the Eisenbahnstraße.” (source)
