General Information

Checkpoint Charlie was a crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War in Germany. The checkpoint was a guard house that was used to filter cars and pedestrians crossing from either side of the wall. The checkpoint had a famous standoff on the location between Soviet and US tanks.

Shame that the original checkpoint is not on display on the road but it is a fair representation of the original checkpoint.
