"Check-point Charlie and the..." Checkpoint Charlie Tip by Gaby_Thieme

Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin: 11 reviews and 11 photos


Favorite thing: Check-point Charlie and the Museum of the Wall.It is a 1 minute walk from the underground U-bahn Kochstrasse. If you come by car be careful where you park. There are a lot of tickets being handed out for un-priviledged parking, even if it is only for a minute to take pictures.
lenght of the wall =100 miles;
hight of the wall = 12 feet;
302 Watchtowers;
Deaths on the Wall 239 ( most of them shot);

Construction of the Wall 13 August 1961;
Fall of the Wall 9 November 1989;
Reunification of East and West Germany 3 October 1990.

Fondest memory: My husband was stationed with the US Military in Germany for 9 years. It was very important for him to see Check-Point Charlie
