Amazing! You can tour the dome or you can take the guided tour. You need to take the guided tour. We had an amazing time with the guide.

A very interesting 60+ min tour with a visit to the Parliament and Dome. The guide explained about the German political system and the building's history and restoration. Gorgeous views from above, too. Totally free but we reserved 2 months in advance online. This is worth a visit!

Book online. Fabulous building with interesting displays. The views from the dome are more than worth the visits on their own. Norman Foster, the architect, has done an amazing job. They should let him do the House of Commons.

Took a quick break here when cycling around the main sites. Great big grass area out front where you can sit and watch the world go buy and get some good photos of this building and the other nice buildings that surround this area.

If you want a reflection on progress in Deutschland historically, this majestic building is the answer. Rebuilding from ruins is written all over Berlin & this is no exception.

We went into the Dome only and didn't take the audio tour. The Dome is a very clever piece of architecture and the slope is gentle enough for those who find walking slightly more difficult. The staff were attentive, for example, they asked if we wanted the stairs of lift to go back down. The exhibits at the bottom of... More

A very impressive building. Lots of history (lots of tourists) but a place to head for on your visit.

It seemed a bit complicated to apply to the German government for passes to visit the Reichstag Dome. It was well worth the effort. The experience was wonderful. We were lucky to visit on a clear, sunny day. All of Berlin was visible. The Dome itself is an impressive work of architecture and construction... a work of art, actually. Our... More

We booked the English group tour (You have to do this weeks in advance). You have to get there early for security clearance and then wait for a guide. I thought all the emphasis on the art in the building was overdone and took too long relative to talking about the governmental process and what happens there. After the inside... More

I didn't realise that you had to go on the Internet and book at least one week in advance to see this building. Too say the least I was very upset about this

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.
