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.

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...More

There are plenty of shops like this one in Berlim. The icon is a cute man, that appears on the pedestrian lights of the city. There are many options of souvenirs made in its shape, but I found them a bit expensive.

How can you not stop in to pick up an Ampelmann shirt? Then you get to explain it when you wear it around town back home. A neat story and a bit of cold war history.

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.

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
