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...more
Good place to get souvenirs from another era. Most of the souvenir shops carry some Amplemann products, but Ampelmann ships just have so much more. Friendly staff, and you can eat Ampelmann gummy bears when you pay at the cashier!
I loved this shop so much that I went back several years later on a visit to Berlin. Now that I am home, I can see the cute Ampelmann and Ampellady on my mugs, poster, T-shirts and keychains. I just wish that I had young...More

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
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
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
