You need to go onto the Reichstag Building website first to arrange a time and date to visit beforehand (you can't just turn up on the day because there's airport style security to get through). It's relatively straightforward though. I recommend arranging to visit it around 8.45-9am in the morning (my husband and I booked in at this time and... More

Touring the Reichstag dome is very nice. Get a reservation. If you plan early enough you can get a tour. But just doing the dome self-tour is nice. Excellent audio.

This is a must tour if you are visiting Berlin! Book in advance. It takes you to the dome and provides you with a audio guide which gives you great history and stunning views of the city. We took an early morning tour and it was wonderful....well worth the time and easy walk to the Brandenburg Gate.

You should visit the website / visit inside with guided tour is free but you must book 2 days in advance for security reasons + they only have dates for 2 months in advance so book ahead of visiting! Def worth it if going to Berlin!

I can't review the building interior as when I attempted to book a visit time the website was down. Even so the outside of the building doesn't disappoint very imposing and good for the 'must have' selfie photo!!

Best free thing to do in Berlin although you have to book ahead online. The building has astounding architecture. Great views from top and a leaning experience on the German parliament.

Building was an added extra to the lunch (truly excellent) for which we made the trip. See separate review. Good views and architecturally impressive.

Spent two hours just staying in line to get registration. You may want to register online, three weeks in advance.

You have to book in advance but it's definetely worthwhile; if you go at sunset it's even better; Foster has done a really great job !

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.
