Checkpoint Charlie

The former infamous border crossing Checkpoint Charlie is one of the most famous places in Berlin and the center of countless stories about the cold war. This border crossing between East and West Berlin was often the scene of escape attempts or exchanges of agents and spies. In 1961, a threatening tank confrontation between the Red Army and Allied troops occurred at Checkpoint Charly. It is thanks to an American general that this dangerous situation came to a peaceful end.
