What people are saying:

It is a must see in the East and West of Berlin during the Cold War and now this checkpoint is more of a tourist attraction to tell you what happened here in the past and to remember the history

Additional Information

Introduction

Checkpoint Charlie is located at the junction of Friedrichstrasse and Zimmer Street. It is a testimony and symbol of the Cold War. From 1961 to 1990, it was the gateway between the Allied, non-German and diplomatic personnel between East and West. A famous warning sign "You are now leaving the American sector." is actually a replica, and the original of the warning sign is stored in the Charlie Checkpoint Museum next door.
