Berlin - Checkpoint Charlie and the Wall

A visit to Berlin would not be right without seeing Checkpoint Charlie.   The last time I saw Checkpoint Charlie was in the early 1970's when you went through the checkpoint to visit East Berlin, at that time it was quite scary.   Now it is a tourist attraction along with the remains of the Wall.

  1. What a thought: Checkpoint Charlie as a tourist attraction. I remember going through there the once and it WAS scary indeed. They even checked the petrol tank of our car with a mirror thing on a stick!
