How can you rank a checkpoint? It's not often you get to walk back and forth through a UN controlled demilitarised zone while still in (on one side at least) Europe.

We were undecided if it would be a good idea to visit based on reviews but so glad we did! We have British passports and had absolutely no problem crossing the border at all and didn't take any longer than 5 minutes.
