“Worth seeing.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I kinda didn´t expect to see what I saw here. It was just more than a piece of wall...Were some much history here, that I hadn´t hear of pefore. And ALL the sightseeing buses take you to this place, so hop off and see it.

“worth the walk”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We walked from the Brandenburg Gate to Checkpoint Charlie. It is still there, but now a tourist spot where they will sell you a stamp for your "passport". The wall exhibition is right by it and that is worthwhile to see.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Not particularly brilliant. I was quite disappointed as it seems to have lost all sense of its history. Maybe the McDonalds straight facing was one of the reasons! The museum was very expensive and seemed like a never ending trove of useless artifacts. Boring. It's worth a look but don't hold your breath.

“tourist trap”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

If there's one place in Berlin that doesn't do its history justice - it is Checkpoint Charlie. All that's still there has been rebuilt, so you don't get to see anything original. Students dressed up as soldiers give out fake passport stamps for money, you can buy russian hats, visit a McDonald's or an Icecream shop called "Cold War". The wall museum is overpriced and not worth the money. All that's worth visiting is the free open air exhibition about the wall. Besides that, avoid! (but visit other cold war sights in the city, such as the Wall Memorial Bernauer Straße).
