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.

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 inexpensive to moderately expensive souvenirs with the little walking man on them including refrigerator magnets, salt & pepper shakers, scarves, etc., etc.

The staff is used to American tourists and pretty patient with the swarming hoards of tourists that come in from nearby attractions.

having been to berlin a couple of times now, I have fallen in love with he ampelmann. This shop has everything, from your usual keyrings, lighters and t-shirts to the more unusual such as vases, pasta and dog collars!! Worth a look if you're in the area.

Stopped in the store at Alexanderplatz. Bought salt/pepper shakers and a black cotton scarf. My daughter bought the gummies. Such a large selection of gifts. Be sure to buy in Berlin because waiting Hauptbahnhof or Airport the items are much more expensive.

This shop is based on the typical traffic light green man design from East Berlin . It was such a friendly design that even now all of Berlin has adopted it on its traffic light. This is probably one of the few East Berllin symbol which has conquered the West.
So the shop is full of usefull or less usefull items where this design is incorporated. As we were travelling we only bough a wallet , a bagage tag and a coaster with Berlin skyline. The shop is also located in a very picturesque part of town and not far from a fantastic chocolaterie ( but I can't remenber the name )

the ampelmann is a great "stop/walk" icon design from east berlin, they took it as a symbol for the city, and created a full collection store. Great for presents.
I love the book holder...
