    Checkpoint Charlie was one of the Berlin border crossings through the Berlin Wall between 1961 and 1990. In Friedrichstrasse between Zimmerstrasse and Kochstrasse, it connected the Soviet and US sectors and thus the East Berlin district of Mitte with the West Berlin district of Kreuzberg.

    THE tourist classic in Berlin. The highest density of tourists, almost more than at the Brandenburg Gate. Sometimes it's hard to get by bike

    Except for tourists, there is actually nothing spectacular here.

    Mandatory stop on every Berlin tour. Tip: It is much quieter here from late afternoon.
