As my husband and I walked up and down the ramps around the dome, I was struck by people without the guides. The guide walks you through what you're seeing across the city and would be a great start to your Berlin visit to get a lay of the land. Also, schedule your visit a month in advance. There were...

I was here last in the 1970,. This was a pile of rubble then WHAT A RESURRECTION! The Berliners have MUCH to be proud of on this!

The modern building links the old bomb damaged remains (evident in photos from 1945) to suggest that to progress sometimes we keep some of the old to remind us why there has to be new!

Very much worth your time in Berlin. The visit is free as is using their audio sets. They don't rush you either, so you can go to the top and take as many photos as you wish! The organisation of the visit is brilliant. Do book in advance so you can go at a time you want, but if like... More

Simply go up the dome. Great view and you will appreciate the views. If about during the day there are some interesting areas to walk around just to the north by the Spree

We visited the Deutscher Bundestag and it was super. We had to wait a lot to register, but you can do it online. The entrance was free and the view magnificent.

I've wanted to visit the Reichstag for a long time, and it didn't disappoint. We booked months ahead and went for the lecture (in English) in the parliament chamber, followed by a walk up into the dome. Of course there is strict security, and the process of getting into the building takes a while. But the lecture was excellent, entertaining... More

The walk around the dome was breathtaking. You have to book around 2-3 days in advance. Remember to bring your passport. Well worth a visit. Best views of Berlin and good audio guide.

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.
