German history

Rated:

A historic building in the city, really interesting to visit and learn about the place but was a little disappointed by the restaurant at the building which was slightly slow to serve. Would recommend visiting the observation deck.

Cool Building

Rated:

A cool building that is steeped in history with the powers of Germany operating there over the years. The dome is magnificent and the viewing areas offer good views over Berlin. Couldn't believe it was free to enter.

What a building

Rated:

Loved my tour around the Reichstag so much, that I did it again the next day! Think it's amazing that the tour is FREE!! The tour includes a trip up to the glass dome, where you walk up to the top with an ear piece telling you what you can see from where about in the dome you are, this is available in many languages. We did it in the daytime and night time, I much preferred the day as you can see more, in the evening it unfortunately was raining and that with the darkness reduced what we could see of Berlin. Could also venture out onto the roof outside. From the outside there's a great viewing area to look at the building.
