Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin

Visit Checkpoint Charlie on your university or college trip to Berlin.

Checkpoint Charlie was the famous border crossing between East and West Berlin. Many citizens of the Eastern European countries still often think of Checkpoint Charlie as the symbolic end of the wall and the Iron Curtain.

People who still live in divided countries today dream of a peaceful coexistence, and for all, Checkpoint Charlie is a place of freedom where world history manifests itself.

The Wall Museum at Checkpoint Charlie contains historical documentation of the Wall; from its construction to the final reunification of Germany, as well as developments in the Federal Republic of Germany and the GDR. 

Students will have the opportunity to observe historical photos, film contributions, escape objects, political art, and learn more about human rights and the reunification, providing a deeper insight into the respective historical connections.
