Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Checkpoint Charlie:

"Visit Checkpoint Charlie Brandenburg Gate Deutsches Historisches MuseumSoviet War Memorial Treptow Reichstagsgebäude and Charlottenburg palace (visit the gardens too ) Most of Germany was bombed during the war and has since been rebuilt but there are a few small areas like Nicholas quarter that are old Berlin."  See More

"I'd recommend to see Checkpoint Charlie and the Brandenburger Tor From the top of the Victory Column you'll have a beautiful view over Berlin."  See More

"Also steer clear off the Checkpoint Charlie or TV Tower, thats nothing you need to see."  See More

"The Melia Berlin on Friedrichstrasses near Spree river is a good location-on line can often get very good rates-only a short walk to trains, Museums, Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, etc."  See More

"If you're interested in going back to the time of the Cold War, skip the East Side Gallery and the Checkpoint Charlie and go walking along Bernauer (website)."  See More

"The Topography of Terror , Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and Holocaust Memorial are the iconic free sites."  See More

"Additionally, the Holocaust Memorial ( & the museum inside of it), the Bundestag (but sign up online beforehand to get in) and Checkpoint Charlie are also free to see."  See More

"Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie are tourist traps but can't go to Berlin without seeing them."  See More

"I would recommend avoiding Checkpoint Charlie as it is a tourist trap."  See More

"I walked a big loop that hit the Bundestag, Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial, and Checkpoint Charlie, and then looped back to see some of the old museum/government buildings down Unter den Linden east of Brandenburg gate."  See More

"For history, check out Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Wall - the memorial has a fantastic wall of history along it that is really interesting."  See More

"Walk from Brandenburg Gate, past the Holocaust Memorial, and on to Checkpoint Charlie."  See More

"You'll definitely be able to see Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and others while you walk to the Topography of Terror, it's along the same path."  See More

"You will visit the Holocaust Memorial, Berlin Wall Checkpoint Charlie a few hot spots for food, before ending at the Berliner Dom."  See More

"Putting that aside, no matter what your like, I would definitely recommend using a day to take in all the world-famous sites (the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall, the Topography of Terror, Museum Island, the Bundestag, Checkpoint Charlie, etc."  See More

"There is so much to see and do in Berlin, you should spend at least three days there. On you will see links to some really cool history specific tours, and I'm sure they will be ranked on other sites as well. I would definitely recommend relaxing and enjoying the Berlin lifestyle. Rent a bike for a few days and get a map, visiting places like the Topography of Terror and the Wall sites, then stopping off for a beer or a coffee. It is quite normal to drink beer or picnic in the park, and a nice way to see berlin life. Görlitzer Park is actually a bomb crater, so an interesting place to visit. On Sunday visit the Mauerpark for the massive flea market, followed by the surreal outdoor Karaoke at Sonntagskaraoke im Mauerpark >"  See More

"You can spend another full day exploring the area around Checkpoint Charlie with the Checkpoint Charlie Musuem and huge parts of the original wall and a lovely outdoor display of the sad history there."  See More
