Berlin Checkpoint Charlie
Germany (Deutschland DE)
There are only a few small sections of the Berlin Wall remaining, and it is hard to imagine its existence today, and all the tragedy and deaths that it caused. Checkpoint Charlie was the third Allied checkpoint tower and is named after the third letter of the military alphabet, i.e. alpha, bravo, charlie.
After the border reopened in 1989, Checkpoint Charlie was taken away by a crane and was replaced by a replica guardhouse. Closeby there is a famous sign that is written in English, Russian, French and German and warns - 'You are now leaving the American sector'.
Checkpoint Charlie still remains one of the most famous sections of the Berlin Wall and has been featured in many famous movies. There is a guard tower and also a red line that clearly states the former divide of east from west.
