A point of interest for anyone who wants to learn a little about Checkpoint Charlie. It is quite commercial but still a place to pass by when visiting Berlin for the first time, as not much from the wall of the checkpoint are left in the area. Further down you will see a checkpoint with some people dressed up as DDR and American soldiers, with whom you can take a picture for a fee. There is also a sign saying you are leaving/entering the Soviet/American sectors, which is always cute for those touristy photos everyone takes. Open every day from 9:00 to 22:00.

Nightlife
You may have heard that Berlin is a city that never sleeps... But that's not to say you can't sleep as well as take part of the nightlife! Many Berliners will comfortably sleep in and head off to a club on Sunday morning, or even at lunchtime, and join the crowd leftover from the night before, dancing to the latest in techno, house and EDM. And if dance clubs aren't your thing, Berlin still has a lot to offer. We've listed a few special spots that should appeal to every taste and age group.
