Mauermuseum - Haus am Checkpoint Charlie

The Berlin Wall - history and events

Mauermuseum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie – © BerlinPartnerGmbH / Scholvien

Today, the house at Checkpoint Charlie shows an almost incomprehensible number of original means and tools that people used in their escape out of the "DDR": from the hot-air balloon to the Trebant up to the chairlift.

One must see the tiny car, whose trunk was not checked on the border because no border patrol could imagine that a person could be hiding in it. Or both of the cut open and placed together suitcases, in which someone also escaped. One of the most nightmarish exhibits is surely the spring gun machine, with which the "DDR" lined its West German borders.
