"Checkpoint Charlie" Checkpoint Charlie Tip by rcsparty

Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin: 171 reviews and 291 photos


While the sandbags and shack have a 'cheesy' feel, it does have the impact of demonstrating the division of a city. This is a tourist attraction that is well worth the stop. However, I would avoid the vendors 'a plenty' along the road selling artificial Russian artifacts. Get there early so you can get a picture of yourself with the shack without a million tourists in the background.
