Like the Capitol in DC, this is for many reasons a must see. As historic, as beautiful but different. You are able to see the parliament working.

You must book ahead, and bring a confirmation letter or PDF document, but access is free and well worth it. The walk up the top is breathtaking, and the free audioguide gives you great information about all around berlin.

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

Hi, me and my friends are travelling around Europe backpacking and we're visiting the Reichstag building as soon as we get of the train into Berlin. I was wondering if there is somewhere we would be able to store our backpacks before we enter the building? Thanks

I have a tour of the Reichstag booked with a group and am wondering if someone can definitively say if a United States driver's license or permit will work for the photo identification to enter. I do not want to have my students carry their passport around if they do not have to.

There is a small trailer across from the Reichstag Building, by the gift shop. Go early in the morning you may be able to get tickets for that day.
