The views of the city were good and audio guide was helpful, also the design of the dome was interesting. The photos on the ground floor of the dome were a high light for me and give a good insight - pre World War 1 to reunification journey of Germany.

Very cool overview of the city to go up to the dome! If you are in a wheelchair or have a baby stroller you can skip the booking in advance (or going to the little white ticket stand) and go straight to the entrance of security.

We applied for entry into the dome on the top of the Reichstag prior to travelling. It was very easy and the application was processed with the usual German efficiency. Great views of the whole of Berlin and the audio tour is very informative. The trip will only take you about an hour or so, but well worth the effort.

Well, the building itself is quite good and beautiful. Audio guide was very helpful. Additionally, it was free so worth a visit, for sure. But do not expect too much that you are going to see the parliamentary hall closely or so on.. It was anyway nice to know some history about those government building.

I'm an American and I haven't been in the White House. I now have lived in Germany for over a year and already have been inside the Reichstag! Definitely go to their website and reserve a free tour of this amazing place! Be sure to bring a passport/ID and be prepared for security (just like an airport). The staff is... More

We visited the Reichstag many years ago, queued for hours, went through security then were pretty much ushered toward the glass dome, walked to the top and down again. Our last trip, however, we pre booked (from Australia) a guided tour. This required an amount of pre-planning of course, and then there were the obligatory checks by the German authorities... More

We weren't able to go inside since there was a long wait to get in; plus it was the end of the day so we were pretty tired. I highly suggest that you buy tickets beforehand. There is a good amount of police security surrounding the building. Even though we didn't go inside, it was still worth seeing the outside... More

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.
