    Give it a look if you are close by and laugh at the people getting photos with the guards.

    I went there saw it and left. It would be wrong not to visit this check point, but it was a bit to commercial for my taste. Did not even take a photo with the fake American soldiers.

    It is a crossing point between east and West Berlin. Actually I don't like the things that remind sad memories and history. Maybe this is the reason why I don't like Berlin very much.

    You have to pay 3 euros for a photo or the boys might yell at ya . Mc D's toilet charges 0.50 euros to use the loo. Souvenier shop has a wall sticker of the original post. Worth a look

    Good to see one of the main boarders between the east and west and read about the history.

    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.

    Famous historical site, former border crossing between East and West Berlin. A piece of very sad period of our history.

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

    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

    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.
