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.

A shop dedicated totally to the red and green crossing men/women signals at the traffic lights and selling souvenirs. Saw more than one of these shops. The Germans take crossing on a green man very seriously and I believe that you can be fined if you cross on a red. Great for kids of all ages!

It's a cartoon of the figure on the traffic lights. A bit weird but whatever floats your boat. I didn't know this was a thing until we visited.

Berlin has history lessons in spades and so much you can take home as a souvenir. THe traffic light icones, Ampelman, is a fun gift for any age. The store also carries other items like books and is very well located.

Even the traffic signals in Berlin look good and what better than this place to go and buy some really cool souvenirs from this shop! Tried the hot chocolate too and it was good!

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 them.
