Schönhauser Allee: "Berlin - Schönhauser Corner" / "Oh Boy!"

THE film set in the East End

Schönhauser Allee is THE backdrop for many a camera crew wanting to capture a piece of the "real" Berlin on the silver screen.

The famous DEFA film of 1957 "Berlin - Schönhauser Corner" is about a gang of youths hanging out under the U-Bahn bridge. And haphazard Niko (Tom Schilling) from the tragicomedy "Oh Boy!" lives right on Pappelallee at the corner of Schönhauser.
