Grown-up Travel Guide’s Best Photos: Checkpoint Charlie guardhouse, Berlin, Germany

The real Checkpoint Charlie guardpost

My views on the actors prancing around on the actual site of Checkpoint Charlie are not exactly news to regular followers of Grown-up Travel Guide. Fortunately the rest of the area around Kochstrasse/Zimmerstrasse has finally got the memorials and exhibitions it deserves – although you still have to zigzag around the fake souvenir stalls of course. The hut there is also fake – the last real one to be used can be found here in Dahlem at the superb Allied Museum housed in a former US Forces cinema which covers the post-war era in fine style. Don’t miss it – I’ll be adding a detailed review soon.
