Checkpoint Charlie was the only customs clearance place between East Berlin and West Berlin when Berlin was separated by the Berlin Wall. Now the Berlin Wall nearby has been demolished, and Checkpoint Charlie is still there. In the middle of the road, it became a tourist checkpoint. It also has portraits of the original US military generals. Tourists often line up to take pictures in front of the checkpoint. The sense of history here is very heavy.
That day, when I just crossed Kock Street and walked from south to north along Frederick Street, there was a small museum on the right side of the street. There were a lot of leaflets in front of the museum. I was looking at it, and suddenly I heard someone yelling, thinking something. It's up, the town is on the spot! It took a few seconds to see that everyone else was okay, and then I realized that it was time for Checkpoint Charlie. Sure enough, when I walked a little further, I saw a small white building in the center of the street. It was a shed with an American flag on it. A little further away, it was a large photograph of a former Soviet soldier hanging on a pillar in the middle of the street. It turns out that Checkpoint Charlie is like this! When I walked to the right side of Checkpoint Charlie to take a picture, I saw someone taking pictures with the "American soldiers", thinking they were simulating the scene of the year, so I showed them a video! They imitated the situation of American officers and soldiers standing guard after the Allied forces entered Berlin and controlled the surrounding area during World War II. This is a very interesting scene, vividly showing the scene during the war.

I have seen the comments of people who have been there and the photos provided. Different seasons, "American soldiers" wear different clothes, but the scenes are really interesting to reproduce, and you can see them in a few minutes. The surrounding spots are very close, and they are all marked on the map.

The "American soldiers" who are still standing and coming and going now seem to be more funny. Tourists take pictures, laugh, walk over and come back. The tourists taking photos with the soldiers were serious or funny. I think people who passed by here a few decades ago had extremely opposite emotions.
