The striking house in Simon-Dach-Straße was built around 1900, when Berlin was expanding in all directions. In 1903, the street was given its current name after Simon Dach (1605-1659). He was a German songwriter who was appointed Professor of Poetry at the University of Königsberg by the Brandenburg Elector Georg Wilhelm in 1639. With good transport connections as early as 1900, the street was quickly built on, so that by 1912 there were already over 1,000 residential units. Today, Simon-Dach-Straße is located in the Boxhagener Kiez, which also includes Wühlischstraße, Boxhagener Straße, Krossener Straße and Gabriel-Max-Straße. The area is characterized by numerous Wilhelminian-style houses and is a magnet for Berlin and Friedrichshain lovers. The property was renovated and subdivided in the 1990s. Elevators and balconies were added as part of the last refurbishment and the top floor was converted into two new penthouses.
Simon-Dach-Straße is located in the so-called Südkiez and is one of the city’s premier nightlife addresses. Young people in particular love the flair and don’t miss out on having breakfast, partying and living here. The central meeting point is nearby Boxhagener Platz – “Boxi”, as Friedrichshainers and tourists affectionately call it. A weekly market has been held there for almost 115 years – now on Saturdays. And on Sundays, the equally popular flea market sells everything from junk to retro and real rarities. An adventure playground delights the youngest residents of the neighborhood, whose parents like to take a breather on the benches and enjoy the shade of the trees in summer. Numerous cafés, bars and restaurants also cater for the physical well-being of residents and tourists. In addition to galleries and hip stores, there are also various daycare centers and children’s stores as well as two elementary school and the well-known Georg-Friedrich-Händel-Gymnasium just around the corner. The M10 streetcar line runs in the immediate vicinity, as do the U1 and U5 subway lines. The Ringbahn is just a ten-minute walk away and if you prefer to drive, you can also be on one of the Karl-Marx-Allee/Frankfurter Allee, Warschauer Straße/Petersburger Straße or Mühlenstraße/Stralauer Allee transport routes in just a few minutes.
