Check Point Charlie

Check Point Charlie, Berlin Overview

The former military checkpoint during the Cold War that divided Berlin. The famous border crossing between East Germany and West Germany, Checkpoint Charlie has been central to several thrillers and espionage films, including James Bond (read, Octopussy)! In those days this border was manned by the Soviet military in East Berlin's Mitte district and by the US military in West Berlin's Kreuzberg district. The cross over was only permitted for foreigners and diplomats. Today replicas of the earlier set up have been created along with the Wall Museum house which gives an insight to visitors about the Wall and various ingenious ideas of people who escaped through it.
