    4€ for each picture. This should be illegal.

    Good to see one of the main boarders between the east and west and read about the history.
  • Artyom F.
    Nasty tourist trap. There is nothing funny with tragedy of german people, they should just leave the checkpoint as it is, not organize performance with guards and so on. Disgusting.
  • Roman L.
    Famous historical site, former border crossing between East and West Berlin. A piece of very sad period of our history.
  • Mohamed H.
    It does worth the visit, enjoy taking pictures of the soldiers 😊

    Tourist spot. Uninteresting.

    Look at the sign you saw in your history textbook. Maybe take a photo. Then go to a neighbourhood that isn't so boring.

    Historic site in Berlin

    A must if it's you're first time in Berlin. Historic significance is just too important.
  • Ceren S.
    Give it a miss, the most unnecessary tourist attraction i've ever been.

    The exhibition is huge and comprehensive, however sometimes off-topic. Plus translations into English and Russian are faulty and inconsistent. Worth visiting to realize the tragedy of the wall
  • Martin M.
    Not much to it to be honest, there are better historical sites to visit!

    Standard tourist spot - must see
  • Shaileshwori S.
    The preserving of history is always great but found the two guards over friendly with tourists. It's good for a quick walk through. Tip: save more time & energy for the museum which closes by 5 pm.

    Lovely historic site, you must go to the museum, so much history behind that check point. Don't miss it!

    Unfortunately what could have been an interesting historical sight is just a tourist trap. Snap a picture from afar (lest they charge you for it) and move on.
