“Too touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

This area is obviously of significant historical value and other than the famous sign and the checkpoint hut itself, I found it disappointing because of the modern buildings around it and how touristy and to an extent tacky it's become - others might disagree with me completely and that's fine.

It's worth a visit for a photo and a look around to see what the entrance to the US sector would have been like, but be prepared for not a great deal of actual history itself.

“Not much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Of an important historic value, but too modern to associate with it's historic relevance. Still a must see.
