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

    A place of not much interest for me, I've never spent more than three minutes there...

    Pretend to shoot a tourist, get caught by the fake soldiers and find yourself thrown into some fake gulag.

    Just a tourist circus. If you want to see Wall, must go Bernauer Staße. (You can go with U8.)

    Easy to find and interesting. You can take a picture and pay in dollars or euros. The museum is very informative as well.

    Pretty touristy but worth a visit. If you feel like throwing away some money you can pay to get a checkpoint stamp (or a few) in your passport :)

    A must. If you get emotional with this, you're a teenager with ADHD or your heart is made of stone.

    Often confused with Charlie's checkpoint... There is McDonald's for people that got hungry of watching Cold War reenactment

    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.

    Dissapointing place where people are taking selfies with guys wearing army clothes. Sad to watch

    welcome to Checkpoint Charlie! Make sure to visit the museum. The exhibits ate disorganized but are very informative. It is well worth the price of admission.

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

    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

    Very tacky tourist attraction, with actors playing border guards and a large McDonalds beside it. Avoid.
