Checkpoint Charlie Museum
Set on 5 floors with eye-opening exhibits, not jsut to do with the war however. Was also an exhibition of world religions which was fascinating.
P.s. excellent Mexican restaurant opposite!!
Haus am Checkpoint Charlie
This is the museum of the history of the Berlin Wall, and of all courageous attempts to get over it. I advice you to visit it, it’s really a MUST.
After visiting the Checkpoint Charlie Museum we went to have a look at Checkpoint Charlie itself...the famous border crossing from East to West Berlin.

Hiding behind the sandbags
After things got bad and the cold war set in, this was how Berliners' comings and goings was controlled

Checkpoint Charlie as was.
Looks a bit of an after thought these days, but you have to remember what people went through for it to be closed.

Visit Check Point Charly
They restored the check point... including the sand bags in the front.
You can read the big announcement: YOU ARE LEAVING THE AMERICAN SECTOR (or YOU ARE ENTER) if you see the other side.
Check Point Charlie was as far...
Check Point Charlie was as far as I was able to go due to restrictions I had on travel. Here is what the area looked like when the wall was in place.
