Checkpoint Charlie | Berlin, Germany


Checkpoint Charlie is the famous border crossing between East and West Berlin. This is where American and Russian forces stood divided after the Berlin Wall was erected on August 13, 1961. The checkpoint was removed when the wall fell on the 22nd of June, 1990. Today replicas have been constructed where tourists can pose.
