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.

Ampelmann Cafe

Wonderful place to rest a bit and catch your breath. Good coffee, even the mineral bottle gas the cheerful Green man on its label. Tasty bi-i-i-g cookies.

This shop is another one of those other quintessentially German things that you have to visit. The shops are very cute and pretty but quite pricey. I bought a hoody for 40 euros.

There's a huge range on offer, too, with something for everyone featuring this little crossing light man, one of the greatest symbols of Berlin. I purchased a sports bag and 'Do Not Disturb'-style door sign and the quality of both seems very good. I shopped in the Karl-Liebknecht-Straße store near the TV Tower, but there are quite a few dotted... More

I was ignorant about the Ampelmann until finding this store. It is a nice store and Ampelmann's story is so inspiring :)

Well - What can I say? What a good marketing experience to base a whole shop full of goodies on the red and green men that keep us safe on the roads. Loved the experience and loved the films showing the different traffic light men in different parts of the world. My favourite was the Chinese men who start by... More

It is one of those not typical shops where you can buy "different" souvenirs. Do inside to have a look!

If you don't want a piece of the wall or an I love Berlin fridge magnet this shop is really good. Actually there are quite a few of them. The stuff is quite pricy, but makes an unusual souvenir.

Think there is a few of these as we visited one near Alexanderplatz. Big variety on offer. Prices are a little expensive but not unexpected.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center 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 neighborhood’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.
