Impressive building, a lot of security to get in. You have to book your tickets in advance on the internet. We received a headset with explanations in our language. It was very nice but we went by night and couldn't see the buildings they were talking about. We didn't see the vue. Also, if you move too fast, the voice... More

Well worth a visit to, its free but make sure you register in advance before visiting, which can be done online without any problems and remember to bring some ID as well. The views from the top were pretty amazing.

The Reichstag Building is impressive from any angle you happen to be looking. It was constructed between 1884 and 1894. Remodeling took place several times over the years. Be sure to have all the your tickets and documents ready to show.

not only because of its historic meaning, but because of the stunning glass dome, designed by Foster - Reichstag is a place you must see in Berlin Warning: to climb the dome, one must register online for a certain day and time

The excursion has to be planned in advance by internet registration. It is free of charge and also each tourist is provided with audioguide. It was very convenient. It would have been a wonderful excursion if there were not so snowy and all the windows were fully blocked with snow, thus we haven`t had a chance to see much through... More

I always love high buildings with good views. The bundestag really has these nice views. Up on the terrace it also has information about the bundestag and the history of parliament. Online i read that you have to book it 2 days in advance. You can do this online, just not with a phone. So you will need a laptop/computer.... More

Is necessary to do a booking before entry, can do by web or in the other side of the street. Even has a many schedules go before the sunset to see all the buildings

My favourite building in Berlin. The Reichstag just reeks in history and is a must . Inside the dome is the history of the building but just to stand at the front and look at this amazing piece of history was fantastic. The surrounding area gives you great views from different angles so explore.

Huge , colossal building. Looks magnificent from near and far. From far, one can see the dome rooftop .Heavily guarded with police at every corner. Saw many visitors who had gotten permission to visit the dome.

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.
