Reichstag - Review
Reichstag is today the seat of German Parliament and holds a very prominent place in the history of Germany. It is amazing how in the past it was a reflection of the imperial rule in Germany but today, it is the face of the new democratic Germany.
Reichstag has seen its share of bad days, with a destructive fire and complete ignorance post World War II, Reichstag has come out stronger than before. There is a beautiful light sculpture made up of mirrors inside the building. They in a way enhances its old charm and adds to its modern beauty. While the exteriors are restored from the original building, the interiors are modern and eclectic. A definite must see for any Berlin tourist.

Reichstag, Berlin Reviews
DO NOT BRING YOUR FILM CAMERA!!!!!! The security guard understood I had a film camera and knew why I didn’t want them to x-ray it but refused to let me in without scanning it anyway. It was very frustrating especially considering almost every airport I’ve ever been to has been understanding and has hand checked my films for me. Mine was only iso 200 and it’s just one scan so I did it anyway but definitely don’t bring yours if you see this review! It’s a cool dome with a great view of the city and some interesting information/ free audio guides.
We tried to visit Reichstag during afternoon on spring of 2017 but they opened during mornings only, and also in order to visit Reichstag you must subscribe earlier morning or even book in advance, like one day before, to visit it and needs to show a personal ID with picture, in our case they asked for our passports, the subscription it was enrolled in a small office set up in front of Reichstag building across the street and took a little time because they had several people in front of us. The good thing you don’t need to pay, it’s a FREE visit. Then next day we had all set to visit and it’s really organized to get inside. We arrived 8am and we got in line following everyone. The Reichstag is a survivor of the World War II and got rebirth as a symbol of the “New Berlin” after being bombing and fire. We are not sure but we believe you can visit the Dome at the top only but it’s enough to spend all morning around, because it’s really interesting, you will have lots of information inside you can read and has a really beautiful city view at the top. Eli: 5 / Serge: 5 Recommended: Yes, it’s one of the most important icons of Berlin and it’s really interesting structure and views.
This is an absolutely stunning piece of Architecture and Engineering. Make sure and book in advance for access. For security reasons you can’t just show up on the day. Unfortunately all the tours were booked out for the day or our visit. Definitely a must when in Berlin.
Reichstag building is the government building for Germany. I trip to Berlin will be incomplete without a visit to this building. To plan a visit, one needs to complete free reservation through the website for a specific day and specific time-slot. The visit to the rooftop is a must - where there is large glass dome with interactive information about the building. I will recommend the visit timing to match just before sunset - this way one can enjoy the Berlin skyline with the day light and with evening lights.
An awesome blend of classical and modern architecture. Also a neat concept of having the ceiling be glass to let you feel like the government is a little more transparent than under the Third Reich. Germany did well by this building and has made it a great place to hang out.
