Although many offers at Checkpoint Charlie are a tourist rip-off, like paying for photos with the actor-soldiers or for a stamp in your passport, I was impressed with the souvenirs in the shops there.

Whereas I think you would not really need a Russian soldier?s hat with the insignia at the front, the thick fur hats are of good use on a cold day. Also the t-shirts were reasonably priced, and I did not see them anywhere else in Berlin. You know, those t-shirts with the print that you are leaving the American sector, in English, German, Russian and French.

They also sell historic post-cards and photos.
