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 - Write a Review
An impressive building and the best part: The visit is free!. It is open daily from 8.00 to 24.00 hrs. The most recommended is to make an online reservation weeks before your visit. If you have not booked in advance, you can register on the south side of "Scheidemannstraße", near the Reichstag Building. But you should come very early in the morning. You can see on a board if any free places are still available in that day or you can also register to visit the dome in the following two days.
Writing in particular to the Dome. It's advisable to visit during the evening so, that you can capture everything in sunset light. Around 7pm in summer would be good. You also have to book your visit appointments few weeks in advance. You can also book audio guides in your language which gives you in depth knowledge about the past. Or you can just pick it up before entering the dome. All in all nice visit. Remember to bring water. The canteen is closed during evening and I accidentally choked on a mint which turned my trip into a search mission for water. 😂
For us, It Was a special visit to the place, allowing us to see more areas than normal. But in general this place is one of the main political places in Berlin and to get in there you have to submit your paper and register one day before the arrival or sometime you have to arrive early to let your papers checked. They need your passport or your personal ID. Inside you can enjoy the tour inside the German Parliament, where the important decision between parties are made.
A strong recommendation if you’re ever in Berlin. Visits will need to be booked in advance via the website, as this is still a working parliament building. We opted for just a visit to the top of the dome with an audio guide, but options are available for guided tours of the rest of the building too. Within walking distance of Brandenburg Gate, the Holocaust memorial and several other areas of note, it’s very easily accessible.
A must-do when visiting Berlin. Book your free tour online. You can choose the language you prefer and you will get extremely well prepared guides who will make the experience really enjoyable. From the dome you have one of the best views on Berlin.
