Owner description: A great, unexpected find in the touristy area surrounding Checkpoint Charlie is boxoffberlin a/k/a bob. It's an amazing mix of an design store, art gallery and espresso bar. The store offers extraordinary souvenirs and cool gifts made by local designers and crafts people, a long way from the mass produced selection in the other shops in the tourist areas of the city. Definitely a place for that unusual Berlin gift. The back space of the shop is a gallery with changing exhibitions of contemporary art, films and more from Berlin based artists. A fascinating place since 2007.

We always visit BoxOffBerlin when in the city now (now on our 7th trip to Berlin). Stephan is a friendly guy and has some very interesting artwork from various local artists and designers. It's not you usual cheap tacky souvenirs which you can get in most shops. The items here are classy and contemporary and look great at home. The shop is only a 2 minute walk from Checkpoint Charlie so very accessible on a trip to Berlin. We'll be back again on our return in April.

Dear Lee, dear Linsey,
It is always a pleasure to meet people like you, who are really interested in design and curious about the art scene of Berlin. I remember your last visit at bob, our inspiring conversation and the pictures you showed to me. I hope you took enough "Berliner Winter" with you, so that you are well supplied for the cold days!
Thank you for your fantastic review! I am looking forward to see you in April,
Stephan

BY FAR the best souvenir/gift shop in Berlin! It's full of creative, interesting, and extremely unique gifts and souvenirs made by local artists. We spent a good hour in the shop and could have easily stayed more! The shop owner was also extremely friendly and helpful (he even helped me buy a gift and surprise my brother). Definitely worth a visit and you WILL be leaving with a great reminder of Berlin.

This shop has stuff made from different designers and artists from Berlin and the rest of the world. Go here if you want a souvenir that is indeed special and different from the mainstream and ugly "I love Berlin"-stuff! The Owner was very friendly and helpful and told us the story behind the things we bought. Very nice place!
