“Well Worth the Effort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

For a fascinating look at modern history, do not miss the Plenary Tour of the Bundstag! There is a tour of just the dome but the tour of the Parliament section is very interesting. You still get to visit the dome tour but you will get a very good explanation of the workings of the German government and a bit of the history before and after unification. You must make online reservations ahead of time but worth the small effort.

“Entirely agree, fantastic free atraction!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Great views of Berlin, entirely free including audio in multiple languages!! Make sure you book ahead so you dont miss out!!!
Every visit needs to be booked in advance, which is only fair, you are entering their parliament!!
Friendly staff!
A heads up re audio, it starts automatically so follow their instructions in regards to how many steps or stop here for a moment. If you keep walking the audio automatically changes to your different location.
A lot of info in the audio!! Loved it!
Amazing views of Berlin most memorable buildings in the dom of this amazing environmentally correct building! A must see!!

“Views of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

You need to register in advance but it is worth it, Berlin is a very flat city so you can see for miles from the dome. There is a free audio guide to point out all of the points of interest that you can see from the Dome.

“Great little piece of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

WWII was ended at the top of this dome by the Soviets, but the real war only ended a week later. it's a historical site, which modern touches to it. Definitely worth a visit, but be warned, best to make a booking and bring your passports for verification when you go!
