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.

I had already read about the ampelmann signs, the traffic lights unique to Berlin. See the link below for background info: http://ampelmann.de/html/geschichte_english.html I was glad to come across a shop dedicated to these symbols only. You can find many attractive designs of goods for every-day use, from key-rings to bags and T-shirts. Not the cheapest souvenir shop, could be a... More

I'm not much of a souvenir guy generally, but this Ampelmann guy is unique and got my attention at many corners that I actually went to seek out somewhere to get a Tshirt with the red & green dude. It's a perfect souvenir place for those that typically don't like souvenier stuff. I can actually say I went there, got... More

Ampelmann is the figure on Berlin pedestrian stop or go lights. It is an East Berlin holdover from the days of a divided city and nation. The Shop is full of lovely souvenirs with the little walking man on them including refrigerator magnets, salt & pepper shakers, scarves, bags, t-shirts etc., etc. we could have bought lots & never usually...

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.
