Bagaimana caranya mengetahui bahwa kita berada dibekas daerah Jerman Timur bila sedang berkunjung ke Berlin? Jawabannya adalah lampu lalu lintas seperti foto diatas yang bernama Ampelmännchen (adalah lampu lalu lintas yang hanya terdapat dibekas daerah German Democratic Republic (GDR)).

Ampelmännchen (German: little traffic light man) is the symbolic person shown on traffic lights at pedestrian crossings in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR - East Germany). The red Ampelmännchen extends his arms to signal "stop," and the green Ampelmännchen confidently strides ahead to signal "go." (Wikipedia)
