This area, where the city of Berlin was born in the Middle Ages, today houses 5 of the most important museums in the world and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.
Checkpoint Charlie is definitely one of those places in Berlin that always leave you a little confused. A corner where hundreds of visitors and groups accompanied by tourist guides stop to try to imagine what was, in a given moment, the hottest place in the Cold War.
The German National Socialist dictatorship led by Adolf Hitler gave rise to one of the most infamous chapters of twentieth-century history and of all of humanity. An unprecedented government of brutality, cruelty, and dehumanization, marked by repression, murder, war, and genocide. A visit to the Memorial is a must if you want to explore the darker aspects of the Nazi dictatorship. You can visit independently or join one of our guided tours of the Sachsenhausen Memorial.
