Owner description: 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.

Nice little souvenir shop featuring the image of the man on the pedestrian lights.

They have a wide range of things to buy, all emblazoned with the green "Walk" man or the red "Don't Walk" man.

Good for touristy gifts for the whole family.

We did most of our take-home shopping at Ampelman. Good range of prices and quirky (as well as useful) thing. Really liked the quirkiness and the slice of old Berlin history. All our gift-receivers were thrilled. There are eight shops around the city, some with cafes.

There are a handful Ampelmann shops and cafes around Berlin including this well-located Flagship at the corner of Unter den Linden and Fredrichstrasse. Opening hours are 9.30am to 10pm (Mon-Sat) and 1pm to 6pm on Sundays.

This is where you find souvenirs and general items featuring the iconic Ampelmännchen images. These are the 'start' (green) and 'stop' (red) pedestrian symbols used in East Berlin prior to Unification in 1989. The images are now popularised and beloved symbols of the city and its past. Items bearing Ampelmännchen have also become wildly popular for souvenir seekers during visits to the Berlin.

You'll see plenty of street lights with the Ampelmännchen while walking the streets of Berlin. It is a neat little part of visits to to the city as are stops at the Ampelmann shops. Visit their website if you want to find their other locations around the city.

Especially on the most touristic areas of Berlim, there are many shops that sell only stuff based on this icon. Of course, other shops may also seel them. Very easy to find around Alexanderplatz, for example.

Brings out a unique part of East Berlin that is both historic and current. A great shop for souvenirs.
