Booking ahead was a great tip for this, we went in December on a very misty cold day. We cleared security quickly but I would guess in the height of summer it would be very busy.

Great place to go to get a good view over Berlin if the weather is good. Free audio guide provides info on the building and the sites you can see from the dome. Entrance without a pre-booked slot is not allowed due to security measures. You must show id and booking reference to enter.

I booked before we came online and printed out tickets so was fully prepared (you can also get tickets on the day but they are limited and don't forget ID as is a government building) A quick lift takes you to the dome where you can get a free audio guide ! Incredible views from the top all for free... More

Really enjoyed this attraction. Learned a lot about the history of the building and Berlin, some great photos & Info. Great views from the wonderful Sir Norman Foster designed dome. Tips; Book in advance, Take passport or ID. Expect a thorough search. Visit Brandenburg Gate whilst there.

A must if you visit BERLIN. Historic parliament, the Reichstag building was nearly completely destroyed during the second world war,( Hilter also burned it down although this has never been proved beyond doubt it was him) apart from the outside walls. The dome tour which can be booked on line (worth pre booking during the summer to avoid Q’s) comes... More

The Reichstag building is definitely worth a visit when in Berlin. It is such a beautiful building to see and walk around. Unfortunately we did not make it inside, however even seeing the outside is definitely worth it. Close to Brandenburg Tor train station for those travelling on the trains like I did.

You should definitely make the reservation ahead (and make sure your reservation is successful). There are not many places for you to see the whole city and Reichstag Building is one of the best place for you. It is free and will provide you an audio guide (with different language options). You get to know the city better from the... 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.
