Worth a quick stop, but not much to see. Perhaps walk by as you explore the other shops and sights. I would not go out of my way to see the checkpoint.

American honky tonk around the former checkpoint. Also a good free exhibit. The East Berlin side is one of the most expensive shopping areas in Berlin. In one of those ironies common in Berlin, the West Berlin side is a quiet slightly crumbly neighborhood.

We walked down Friedrichstrasse from under den linden towards check point Charlie. It was a nice walk. Street is very clean. Lined on each side full of high end shops to your small independent shop, with the occasional cafe and restaurant along the way.
