Of all the sights in Berlin I must admit this was a little bit touristy and not really what I expected

The original checkpoint was removed with the wall and the current checkpoint was rebuilt as an exact replica. The checkpoint itself is quite small and unassuming, just in the middle of a busy road. The museums around are very interesting and worth a visit though...More

Whilst in the actual location of Checkpoint Charlie, it is all fake, and just a poor tourist attraction. The hut is fake, there are so called actors who charge €3 for you to take a photo in front of the hut with them, and 90%...More

It is not spectacular and there are lots of tourists in the area but if you can see it then you can get some concept of what life must have been like back then. Very sad. It represents what the past was like.

OK to get an idea of what it was, but SO touristy & crowded in the area. I'm not certain that I would recommend to go out of my way a great deal to see this.

Civilians wearing vintage military uniforms pose with you in front of a made-up structure at the former location for the sole purpose of making money.

Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
