    If you are in Berlin go and see it, it’s a part of Berlin history. Don’t stamp your pass.

    You have to pay for photo, 3 euro per person. This is not good

    Do NOT go into the Check Point Charlie Museum. Definition of a tourist trap.
  • Ruth M.
    Nothing really special. As other have mentioned, it's highly commercialized and full of tourist traps. Not so much to see if you're looking for an educational experience.

    Checkpoint Charlie is a symbol of the Cold War. Is a important landmarks in Berlin and representing the separation of East and West of Berlin. It’s full of tourists.

    Nothing special only touristic scene. Better to spend time around museum and information center where you can see old time photos and information about wall

    Cool place to take a souvenir photo with the 2 soldiers. 3 euros per person for more multiple photos.

    Highly commercialised, which is incongruent to what it stood for.

    Set a good few hours aside. It's not a great layout and it could do with a spruce up but there's some really cool interesting stories hidden all over the place.

    Nothing more than a tourist trap.If you want to take pictures you need to pay 3eur per person and per photo.Otherwise, they are hiding behind the flags and covering their faces.They are very roude.

    A little underwhelming. Lots of great history behind it but was allot smaller than expected and not a lot of information available.

    Super kitschy. Nice historical moment but really touristy.

    I actually took Checkpoint Charlie off my personal "things to show visitors"-list because it is completely unspectacular. Partially probably due to my lack of interest in history but well... 🙄

    It's touristy, but that's part of the point of how much things have changed. The museum next door is a little chaotic but fascinating and worth a visit

    Fun to go at least once. Ignore the fact that the reenactors' uniform wouldn't pass inspection on a good day :p

    Berlin wall
  • prince of A.
    There is not much to see, you visit just to say that you've been there. The panels on the wall are interesting and some of the souvenir shops too.

    It's offputting to see actors doing poses for pictures, the spot loses its point as a reminder of the not so old times.

    This district is charged of history. You could visit the museum, take a pic to the checkpoint with guards and have a drink very close afterwards.
