lime tree road 7 („mansion Dressler “)

the action plays in Munich, is turned in Cologne Bocklemünd (50° 58 'N 6° 51 ' O). On the there WDR Studiogelände the entire external window blind was almost developed as front mockup; within the range of the backyard of house No. in addition 3 found the small park with children's playground, often shown in the series, as well as the cemetery for the deceased road inhabitant place(whereby the latter became meanwhile too small; in the meantime cemetery scenes are turned also on a genuine cemetery). The majority of the window blinds are copied city hall fronts without each interior life. The Cafés „Bavarian “and „Moorse “, „the Aloisius Stub'n “, „the Humanitas “- shop, the travel agency and Urszulas hairdresser salon became due to large window areasand more easily observableness tapable equipped. Remaining interior trick take place in two of closed Studios, where all furnishings including the stairway were placed behind by means of adjustable walls; certainly not completely model-faithfully. Thus one arrives for instance from nut/mother Beimers kitchen out directly in the bathroom of Andy Zenker, the stairwayfrom house No. Akropolis hides itself 3 “behind the curtain of the stage of the Greek restaurant „. Also the individual dwellings are not structural drawing-moderately conceived. It does not seem to give basic walls. Often windows point directly to „neighboring building “.

The external window blind of the house line „Café Bavarian “was into thatfirst years of the series missing. Since the turning area is because of the motorway and was very high with sending deer of the noise levels, one decided to establish a noise protection wall and sketched equal the Kastanienstrasse to it. Relikt of this time is also occasional active traffic in the partthe Kastanienstrasse before „the travel agency Ehrlich “, although the road ends there after few meters at a large gate.

gossip and scandals

  • the lime tree road is the first German TV-series, in which a same sex kiss was to be seen (1990). That led to Censorship by the BR, which would not send this consequence.
  • Anna Nowak, who embodies the Urszula Winicki in the series, zierte 1999 the frontispiece of the German Playboys, which did not fit into the picture of some prüden spectator (see also criticism).
  • With the campaign „selectsGung! “the series brought up for discussion the topic foreigner right to vote; with the following election to the Bundestag some voting cards had to be segregated as invalid, because on them „Gung was “in addition-written and marked.

again and again also briefly scenes with current contents turn topicality the producers of the lime tree road after, in order to receive a certain timenear requirement before the radiant emittance date. Thus for example with the election to the Bundestag 1998 four versions were prepared over the exit. With the election to the Bundestag2005 purchase taken to the death of a direct candidate and the associated by-election in Dresden.


critics accuse Geissendörfer to abuse the lime tree road again and again for political propaganda. The characters of the lime tree road actually behave often politically very equivalent, party-movingfor left policy, which is determined of the 68er-Bewegung. Other political aspects, in particular by the family sound represented, often rather than amusingly or obviously negatively. Also with explosive political topics the figures of the lime tree road take again and again clearly position.
