Checkpoint Charlie

  • checkpointcharlie

    Muren er det måske mest markante stykke arkitektur i Berlin og et af de største. Eller rettere: var markat, for den er stort set væk igen. Muren, som af DDR staten blev kaldt for den antifasistiske beskyttelsesvold, kan nu kun besøges i brudstykker rundt om i Berlin. Det er de færreste, der savner den.

    Checkpoint Charlie var nok den mest kendte af grænseovergangene mellem Øst- og Vestberlin mens byen var delt 1945-1990. Man får fornemmelsen af, at lige her var den kolde krig. Checkpointet lå ved Kreuzbergs nordligste punkt på Friedrichstraße på grænsen mellem den sovjetiske og den amerikanske sektor. Den måtte kun passeres af ansatte ved de allieredes ambassader og militærorganisationer, ikke-tyske udlændinge, den varige repræsentation for Vesttyskland og DDR-funktionærer.

    Ingen andre steder i Tyskland kommer man så tæt på den kolde krig og grænsen mellem øst og vest som ved Checkpoint Charlie. Et besøg på Mauermuseum er en uomgængelig del af det første Berlin besøg. Her skal du komme den første dag du er i Berlin. Museet er din ballast til resten af besøget.

    Den tyske kunstner Yadegar Asisi er berømt for sine gigantiske 360 graders panoramaer. Et af de helt store kan du opleve ved Checkpoint Charlie. I en stor, sort ”silo” præsenteres Asisi’s panorama – et maleri, der er en total oplevelse. Det er så godt lavet, at det for Berlin-guide er lidt vanskeligt at vælge om der er tale om kunst eller historie.

    Berlin endte i klemme mellem øst og vest, da 2. verdenskrig sluttede og den kolde krig begyndte. De fleste spionromaner med respekt for sig selv foregår i og omkring Berlin. Her blev lusket, smuglet, lyttet, observeret og propoganderet. Det er ikke mange år siden at muren faldt og den kolde krig heldigvis fordampede. Følg med i sporene på den kolde krig.

  • Overgangene mellem Østberlin og Vestberlin er helt lidenskabsløst navngivet A, B, C… eller i radiosprog Alfa, Bravo, Charlie… Mest kendt er overgang C i Kochstrasse: Checkpoint Charlie. En mindre kendt overgang er Checkpoint Bravo, som overskar motorvejen sydud af Berlin mod Postdam. I dag er her et lille mindested og udstilling – og i den anden ende var Checkpoint Alpha.
