Supposedly the actors that play border guards during the day are male strippers at night.

Best Western Central Europe

A must see! Great exhibition about the history of Berlin Wall along Friedrichstrasse.

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

As a tourist spot, this is overrated. But good to visit once so that you can say that you have been here.

James Bond travels through Checkpoint Charlie in Octopussy (1983); he is driven there by M to find the train Octopussy is using to help Kamal Khan and Gen. Orlov smuggle jewellery through the border.

East Berliners tunnelled, dived, ballooned and zip-wired to the West when the Cold War offered cold comfort. It’s these great escape stories that make Checkpoint Charlie unmissable.

What's the point of paying to have your passport stamped by fake guards? I really don't get this.

Two jerks dressed as soldiers will ask you for money, take your pictures and don't even pay them attention

Checkpoint Charlie: the most famous border crossing of all the checkpoints along the wall that used to separate the zone controlled by the USA from that controlled by the Soviets. http://bit.ly/U9uUQo

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.
