Inspired by the beloved East Berlin pedestrian traffic signal, Ampelmann is a well-known brand for a range of products that are perfect as Berlin souvenirs.
The "Ampelmännchen" was created in 1961 in East Germany as a road traffic signal for pedestrians. After the German unification, a design company developed a range of lifestyle products with the famous traffic light figure as its logo - which turned out to be a huge success.
Bags, watches and cuddly Ampelmanns
The eight Ampelmann shops across Berlin offer a variety of functional and design articles - from clothes and bags to watches and notebooks to jewellery and cuddly Ampelmann toys. The flagship store at the boulevard Unter den Linden - located at the very spot where the first Ampelmännchen traffic light was introduced - also serves coffee and sweets and provides information about the history of the East German Ampelmännchen. On top of that, the store holds a collection of over 30 traffic lights from all over the world.
