Relics of the past









Germany, Berlin, December 16, 2016

Today I visited Checkpoint Bravo at the once border between de GDR and West Berlin. The colourful buildings were part of the American control point. The large round building was a cafe, which had no customers. It was closed down and never opened again. Some years ago it was bought by an anonymus buyer. Since then the cafe is fenced off.
Some buildings are still in use as custom office. I was told that I wasn't allowed to take photos. Oh dear...  
With the exception of a control tower there are no remains of the GDR checkpoints.
