The Berlin Wall History Mile info board at the Friedrichstrasse border crossing tells about the time that U.S. and Soviet tanks faced off against each other at the checkpoint on 27 October 1961 (at the corner of Zimmerstrasse and Friedrichstrasse in front of Café Adler). This conflict was over the right to unrestricted movement in both parts of Berlin for members of the Allied forces.
