The Sunday street is a street in the Berlin district of Friedrichshain . It was named after Johann Gottfried Sonntag (1750-1822), who was a city councilor and chancellery secretary in Berlin and who in 1783 leased what was then the Berlin Vorwerk Boxhagen .

The street runs from Neue Bahnhofstrasse to Wühlischstrasse and Gryphiusstrasse and thus precisely towards the former Vorwerk.


The Sonntagstraße got its name between 1893 and 1901. While the route was still listed as street 26a in Section XIV of the development plan in 1893 , it was already indicated by name in the city map in 1901. It runs along the Ostkreuz train station , which is a listed building. Houses 17–22, which belong to the Helenenhof residential complex, are also protected .
