Beautiful panoramas, best to go just before sunset to see Berlin at it's most beautiful. Audio guide is free. Take time on the balcony to ponder this complex, modern city, and how and why it was chosen to be rebuilt

This building is something like warning finger against it what was in the past. Although the building itself is a nice example of sensitive unification of old (classicism) and modern (cupole) architecture an importance of the building as a symbol of something terrible is far greater.It is a place where you need to stop and to contemplate. Even so, many... More

A wonderful building to visit - the walk up through the dome is wonderful and the view over the city second to none. Book online to save queueing. We booked the night before and got a slot at peak time with no trouble.

You definitely have to see this! The dome is incredible and has an amazing view! There is an audio guide in several languages that helps you through this historical building. One can book a guided visitation for free inside the parliament, which I strongly recommend! Very windy, thus cold! A must see

Fantastic but make sure you prebook on line well in advance. You can't get in otherwise. It is free with great 360° views of Berlin. We arrived 45 mins before our allocated time &went straight in.

Not much to see other than the building with a lot of tourists taking pictures. Without a tour or tour bus there doesn't appear to be anything so you don't know what you're looking at or why it is significant.

Waited about 45 minutes in line to get tickets which was the low light. But the security and lift up was quick enough. Free audio guide was very interesting and the views were decent. Very good attraction a must for Berlin.

To be hones, I loved it more than the TV Tower. The views are amazing from the top and you feel the wait was worth! You must book online 3 days earlier or have to go in person early morning to reserve the time slot for you. The audio is worth listening so refrain from just clicking the photographs :)

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
