Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin: 171 reviews and 291 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.).
