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.
