After breakfast, we made our way to Checkpoint Charlie, the former US Army checkpoint between the American and Soviet occupied sectors of Berlin, now restored to kitschy glory. For a couple of euros you can get your passport stamped with fake clearance to cross the east-west border and get your photograph made in between fake American and Soviet soldiers. As if our giant café au laits from Café Einstein weren't enough, we stopped off for espressos at Café Adler (Adler means "eagle") which overlooks the checkpoint. Afterward we walked the former path of the Wall along Niederkirchnerstraße, passing by the Topography of Terror and ending at Martin-Gropius-Bau, where we took in a magnificent Cindy Sherman exhibit.
