a really fun shop to visit for souvenirs. In my opinion they should have tequila shots and more common souvenirs some were a little eccentric but definitely the souvenir shop to be.

This is such a great shop. When you come to berlin you're bound to notice the quirky 'Ampelmann' traffic lights around the place. I think that it's great that there's a shop where you can buy all things Ampelmann to take home and remember Berlin by. Stop by to pick up some really groovy souvenirs.

If you love Ampelmann - and who doesn't - check out this shop. It's got everything you could possibly want to remember about this little guy, even beer! But it's all really touristy, as you'd expect, and nothing really stood out. I didn't buy anything.

This area of Berlin is excellent for walking around and seeing the city. This shop focuses on the amplemann, or the walking signs at street corners, made famous during the east/west Germany times. It is worth checking out if in the area.

Love the symbols and trendy items - could not resist and bought several nice souvenirs of Berlin - especially given it's history from the street signs used in old East Berlin

My teen daughter had to go to visit the shop on Unter Den Linden. Ampelmann was on everything you could imagine and she got many gifts for her friends. The staff were friendly and helpful. He is an unique and iconic figure in Berlin especially at the traffic lights. An interesting shop to visit and different from the usual souvenier... More

There are lots of these shops across Berlin. Ampelmann is basically the little man on the traffic lights and he's awesome. You can get Ampellman gifts in pretty much any touristy shop but the official shops are the best because it's ridiculous to see the amount of stuff you can get with him on. There's even a restaurant based around... More

I went to the outlet on the Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 5 (There are several spread around the city). I have mission to buy some souvenirs for friends' teen daughters and they have to be unique, only from Berlin. Ampelmann serves the purpose perfectly. A good story to tell how it is linked with Berlin, a good design to be easily recognized with... More

A special place to remember Berlin by. At first I thought of buying the magnets, but ended up buying the Ampelmann bag, which I love and use every day!

Yes everything is dedicated to the men on the pedestrian crossing lights but really nothing special, the usual souvenirs mugs, tshirts, etc. These are also available at numerous other shops in Berlin that carry other souvenirs. Wouldn't bother going out of the way to visit....
