If you’re a tourist in Berlin you will almost certainly find yourself here. There are interesting things to do around but Checkpoint Charlie is every bit as much of a tourist hell hole as Times Square in New York or Leicester Square in London.

Its a overcrowded place build for tourist and doesnt show the real atmosphere how the checkpoints used to be. Other wall/checkpoint memorials are better.

Loads of people standing in the road all taking pictures. Seems the guards charge you for getting up close for pictures, so avoid that. Nearby shop is a bit of a rip off.

Must see because it is famous. That's why I went . However the guys standing there are strippers wearing uniforms and they charge you 3 euros for a photo. They look ridiculous.
