There are some wonderful parts to this museum, such as the tale of the two families who escaped by hot air balloon and the collection of cars used for the escapes. However, information boards crowd the walls from floor to ceiling and it would be...More

Really very interesting to tour this museum as someone who remembers the Berlin Walls demise. There are some amazing tales of bravery and exhibits of cars etc where people hid in their bid to escape. There are also very very many boards of writing which...More

We have visited this museum but the price was too high. There was a large queue at the entrance but only 1 ticket booth open. After that the museum lacked a walking structure especially in the back (no arrows of signs), the collection isn't sorted...More

Really enjoyed this attraction. It set out to give some idea of what life was like for ordinary people on both sides of the wall and in this succeeded very well. The photographs and videos donated by ordinary Berliners were very moving. The audio recordings...More

We spent a week in Berlin and were impressed by everything except this place. Because it is next to Checkpoint Charlie, it is very popular but it is a huge let-down. The museum appears to have begun during the Cold War to commemorate the Wall,...More

the museum of checkpoint charlie is a hyped up exhibit of successful and unsuccessful attempts to cross from east berlin to west berlin during the cold war. what is amazing is that it was only about 20 years ago that the wall fell.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s
and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

I would encourage you to try and fit in both the Topography of Terror and the Museum at Check Point Charlie. Each gives a good summary of different eras of Berlin's and Germany's history. The former is all about the Nazi... More
