Ave Maria: a small miracle of a store
Looking for Jesus? A good place to start is Berlin's wondrous Ave Maria, where you'll find him alongside saints, the Madonna and plastic replicas of the Pope.
This devotional emporium in Potsdamer Straße stocks everything a committed Catholic might require, from crucifixes and rosaries to five-foot effigies of the Virgin Mary.
But it's not just the faithful who flock to the store. Devotees of religious kitsch stop by for gaudy amulets, saintly coffee coasters or plaster pietas. There's a regular clientele, too, for gloriously heady church incense, which Ave Maria sells by the weight in 40 different varieties.
A godsend, then, for Berlin's believers, and for others, the perfect destination for a (heavenly) host of knick-knacks.
