Continuity 

When Otto rides his motorcycle back to East Berlin, there is a balloon on the tailpipe with "Russki Go Home" printed on it. As he rides through the streets of West Berlin, the lettering is on the side of the balloon. By the time he crosses into East Berlin, the lettering has shifted and is now on the rear.

Factual errors 

Schlemmer calls his former superior officer in the SS "Herr Oberleutnant". The SS had no rank of Oberleutnant nor did its members call each other Herr. Oberleutnant was a German Army rank. The corresponding SS rank was Obersturmführer.

In the Grand Hotel Potemkin sequence showing the crossed Soviet and East German flags, the East German flag is upside down (black stripe should be on the top); maybe this was a deliberate error on the part of the filmmakers.

In the Grand Hotel Potemkin scene, Peripetchikoff says "We cannot interfere with internal affairs of sovereign Republic of East Germany." The correct formal name of the country was the German Democratic Republic.

Scarlet talks about her and Otto blowing up balloons that will later be floated over West Berlin. The only balloons that float are the ones inflated with helium or hydrogen.

In the scene with the three MPs, when one opens the door and says he wants to be taken away, the other soldier call him "Sarge" at least twice. However, the insignia on his sleeve shows he's a Specialist 5th Class, equal in pay grade but not addressed as a sergeant. The two soldiers with stripes (Corporals) would actually out rank the specialist who was not considered a Noncomissioned Officer.

Revealing mistakes 

In the shots from the west side of the Brandenburg Gate, a sign is shown reading: "ACHTUNG! YOU ARE NOW LEAVING WEST BERLIN." No such sign, in mixed German and English, was ever posted in Berlin. The signs advising that one was leaving or entering one of the four sectors of the divided city were all written in four languages: German, English, French and Russian. Apart from its factual inaccuracy, it would make no sense to post a sign written partially in one language and partially in another.
