Overview
More
The Ampelmannchen is one of the few things that survived the fall of the Wall in 1989. Meanwhile, the Ampelmann has become a Berlin ambassador. This was assured by the company AMPELMANN. In addition to the AMPELMANN Restaurant there is a cafe and six shops, where every visitor will find a piece of Berlin to take home with.

An icon of the former East Berlin of the GDR and I love having the souvenirs, but the many Ampelmann products are very pricey in my opinion.

A whole chain of shops that grew out of the Walk/don’t Walk guys. Lots of fun products - without living here the perspective is really amusing. Pretty silly, but lots of potential souvenirs.

To know Ampelmann is to love Ampelmann. It's impossible to come to Berlin and not come across East Berlin's most beloved icon. Luckily they have several Ampelmann shops where you can get souvenirs. I bought some refrigerator magnets and still smile whenever I look at...More

There are plenty of shops like this one in Berlim. The icon is a cute man, that appears on the pedestrian lights of the city. There are many options of souvenirs made in its shape, but I found them a bit expensive.

DW and I wanted something unusual for a souvenir of our stay in Berlin. We had learned, while in Vienna, that Austria uses their crosswalk signage as a way of advancing and/or recognizing social change (e.g., showing same-sex couples), which was interesting. In Berlin, we...More

How can you not stop in to pick up an Ampelmann shirt? Then you get to explain it when you wear it around town back home. A neat story and a bit of cold war history.

Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
