The gap is there because it’s specified in the german din layout where the address field has nine lines with the first three lines reserved for dispatch information, a easy way to get rid of this space is to disable the dispatch field with

Nice to know!

Actually it was not the gap that bothered me. You are right, DIN 676 B says 45mm. But this seems to be useless as all window envelopes (that I possess) have their window at 50mm. It defeats the purpose of the backaddress field, which is hidden by the DIN layout. Shouldn't they be able to read it in the Post office in case the addressee is wrong?
