One thing that stands out in my mind as sort of symbolizing how things have changed is that the street where Checkpoint Charlie was located has a museum on one side of the street and some souvenir and snack shops, including a Subway sandwich shop, on the other side of the street under the overall name "Snackpoint Charlie."

Berliners have always had a somewhat 'avant guard' attitude towards life.

From what I am aware of, much of the routing of the former Wall is still there as parkways and memorials and so forth, including the 'Mauerweg' ('Wall Path'), a pedestrian and bicycle pathway that follows about 90% of the Wall's former 'No Mans's Land'.  The long straight section of the A113 autobahn, running southsoutheastward from the A100 innerbelt towards the new airport, was built on the Wall's former death strip.

Can't drive out the way we drove in...

I was fascinated by that video, and sought out more.  This one is a good one; watch how you can tell they've entered East Germany just by the camera bouncing:

Inside the A2 Helmstedt Marienborn Crossing there would have been a sign saying DDR Zero Tolerance DUI signs. http://www.autobahn-online.de/a24/a24.html One here is on the A24 Hamburg-Gudow West Germany East Germany Zarrentin Berlin Autobahn.
