Day 7 Berlin – Checkpoint Charlie

When I crossed into East Berlin in 1988 I went through the Friedrichstraße train station, so going to Checkpoint Charlie was something on my bucket list. I went into the museum when I was there.

The picture of a very young soviet soldier actually shocked me – I thought he looked about 15 years old!

  1. Fantastic, one place I would love to visit. Brought up in the 50’s during the Cold War this now seems so long ago. But at the time it was very real and quite scary. Just glad it is all over now 🙂
