Checkpoint Charlie 2

Berlin, Germany view map

Checkpoint Charlie has become a tourist attraction. Just as the Colosseum in Rome has the fake gladiators who charge for a photo, so does this landmark now have cute girls in replica US Army uniforms available for photo ops. You can also have your passport stamped with a DDR stamp by a guy dressed as a Russian soldier.

This is actually a replica of the original shack that was removed in the early 90's. The side with the sand bags faces the former East German side - the Wall line marker is about 50 yards behind me.
