Checkpoint Charlie

Friedrichstraße 43-45, 10117 Berlin  

At Friedrichstraße, and featured in many cold-war era spy movies and books, this was the most famous of the border crossings. It was the only designated crossing for foreigners and Allied Forces. Many notable historical incidents took place here, including the intense standoff of Soviet and US tanks in 1961, and the fatal escape attempt by Peter Fechter. Today, parts of the wall, a US guardhouse replica, and a museum can be visited.
