“Had to be seen”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Saw it only the tele for years so had to visit, there is an interesting display beside it of how it used to be, also a chance to buy Russian militaria if that is your thing. Some pleasant cafes nearby, just one of those things you have to see when in Berlin

“All a bit twee”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

A bit disappointing and nothing like the emotional pull of the Brandenburg Gate. The nearby museum looked overpriced and we gave it a miss, having seen the Berlin museum earlier in our visit.

“Must see!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The must see for any Berlin visit.
Take your photo next to the original checkpoint. Or for a few Euros with costumed guards.

“Thought provoking.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Located in the suburb of Friedrichstadt near the main shopping street. This little checkpoint area helps you understand what was once here at checkpoint charlie. It appears to be a tourist trap where you can be photographed with guards in uniform, nevertheless it still has the capability to conjure feelings about its original purpose. Very easy access once again, where once you've had a look you can nip back down the street to some of the lovely shops this area has.
