The staff was extremely helpful and we were able to find what we wanted as souvenirs. Nobody felt rushed by the staff and the gummy bears by the register ended our stay perfectly.

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!

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.
