In five years of tour guiding in Berlin I have never seen Checkpoint Charlie this deserted. Although not the most beautiful site the city has to offer, this iconic location is steeped in history. This is where Soviet controlled East Berlin and the American controlled sector of West Berlin met and in October of 1961 became one of the most tense locations during the Cold War. Want to know more? Just get in touch.
