Ampelmann, the new ambassador for Berlin – from the “The Economist” April issue’s cover hero, to the first traffic light man in Tokyo.
With a waving flag, our Ampelmann adorns the front page of April’s 2018 issue of the renowned British business magazine "The Economist". With a known determined step, it strides high up on the Brandenburg Gate towards the future. Out to the world and in to Tokyo, 8.910 km away, where the first east traffic light man outside of Germany will be installed in the future, the Ampelmann figure stands for the cosmopolitanism and coolness of Germany's "new" era.
