"Checkpoint Charlie Museum" Checkpoint Charlie Tip by MichaelFalk1969

Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin: 170 reviews and 289 photos

 
 

The Checkpoint Charlie Museum is dedicated to the history of divided Berlin in Cold War times, with a strong focus on how the common people dealt with the situation. A fascinating part of the exhibit shows the plans and devices of East Germans trying to escape into West Germany (including digging tunnels, hot air balloons etc.).
