What travelers say:

Really there isn't much at this attraction but I feel it's still a must visit for its historical significance. It used to be a border crossing between East and West Berlin and as such, it has really become a tourist destination. I don't believe any of the items there are actually original but nonetheless I do suggest going if you're in Berlin. It is interesting to realize that a mere 30 years ago normal citizens could not go cross over easily as we can now.

Additional Information

Introduction

Checkpoint Charlie is located at the junction of Friedrichstrasse and Zimmer Street. It is a testimony and symbol of the Cold War. From 1961 to 1990, it was the gateway between the Allied, non-German and diplomatic personnel between East and West. A famous warning sign "You are now leaving the American sector." is actually a replica, and the original of the warning sign is stored in the Charlie Checkpoint Museum next door.
