Things to Do: Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin, Germany

Checkpoint Charlie This is the most famous crossing point, where people moved from East to West when the Wall was up. Now, two “soldiers” stand guard but mostly get their pictures taken with elated tourists for an informal two-Euros tip. What is that all about?

Stop for a drink and some lentil soup across the street at the historic Cafe Adler (206 Friedrichstraße, 030/2518965), once frequented by Westerners trying to catch a peek of East Berlin.
