See the real one at the Allied Museum. The one in Berlin is a replica. Our tour guide failed to let us off at the gate which was somewhat depressing and comments were made to the cruise line about it

Just a little reconstructed guard shack in the middle of the street with two guys posing as American Soldiers that to me were disrespectful of the position they were portraying.

Very interesting city. A take of 2 totally contrasting cities between East and West Berlin. The remaining parts of the old wall made you think!

It takes two hours by train to get to Berlin, but the private train Viking chartered was nice. We did a WWII tour and got to see Checkpoint Charlie, the Memorial to Murdered Jews, the Reichstag, Brandenburg gate, the Wall and the Cold War Museum which were all great. The only downside was at the Cold War museum our guide did not take us through and everything was written in German! I would have rather gone to the Spy Museum or the Check Point Charlie Museum. They sounded very interesting. Read Less

You can save your time. There is nothing there but a hut and some actors. Don't let them stamp your passport as it invalidates it!!!
