"Checkpoint Charlie Museum - a waste of time" History - Cold War Tip by MariusG

History - Cold War, Berlin: 9 reviews and 5 photos

This "must" is just a waste of time and money. After 5 minutes inside you get the idea, but then you've paid so much, that you must stay and waste at least an hour in this crowded, poorly organized and badly ventilated place.

Unique Suggestions: Taking a few shots of the replica guardhose should be definetly enough.

Fun Alternatives: A much better alternative is visiting the remains of the wall at Warschauerstr. (U1, U15)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
