There are several possibilities to visit the Bundestag building and I recommend the "intermediary" one: one hour guided tour inside the building, an overview of the plenary (a nice spot for some pictures!) and the dome. You should reserve it through the internet before, but it is not that hard. The guide will take you through the several moments of... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the Reichstag which is an amazing structure interesting in itself, and providing brilliant views. The audio guide is excellent. We didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on that. You must register in advance of your visit - either online or at the service centre across the road where you will almost certainly need...

This is such a unique building and well worth a visit. The audio tour guides you in a spiral motion to the pinnacle of the building. The views of the city are superb whilst down below the German Parliament carry on with business as usual. The engineering and design of this building is something well worth experiencing.

Not to be missed if you are visiting Berlin - we queued in the cold to get tickets so if there is a way to buy them in advance I would recommend you do it! Worth the wait though.

Combining New and Old buildings can't be more striking and impressive than this. However, the long wait for getting an appointment for entry time was very time consuming and tedious.

Spent 1 hour in line to reserve tickets for next day only to get lucky & join a tour at starting at 8 pm. Brilliantly informational tour not to mention the view. You must visit.

Fantastic audioguide with good explanations of German government as well as the buildings and sites viewed from the top of the dome. I wish other places (hint to the US) did half as good a job with their buildings. Excellent crowd control timing.

We made reservations before our trip as security is high and you must be pre approved. The Dome is interesting Views awsome

Book you place on their website weeks before you go, its well worth a visit. A gentle walk up the sloping walkway to the top of the dome is a must for great views of the city especially at sunset.

Went up the dome of the Reichstag. Would recommend. Some excellent views and audio tour worked very well. We booked in time to be at the top for the sunset so enjoyed it very much. When we left around 20:30 it was very busy but we went in about 19:00 and did not have to queue at all.

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.
