We booked an early morning time slot on the internet a week before we were in Berlin and we absolutely loved exploring the Dome. This is a gorgeous building and the view from the top is excellent. While there, make sure to save some time (and money) to experience the restaurant next to the dome. The breakfast was great (a little spend but worth every $) and the view was excellent.

Make sure to book a reservation in advance online. There is no cost to you and you will avoid the ridiculous queue that exists across the street from the Reichstag for the "unprepared" people who want to see the dome.

A restored government office building but still there are some reasons to visit:

Special exhibit that includes six thousand black tin boxes. One for each member of parliament who served from the first day of democracy in Germany. One box without a name recalls the years when there was no democracy in Germany.

When the building was renovated recently, when Germany moved the capital from Bonn to Berlin, They discovered beneath plates from earlier renovation, graffiti and inscriptions written by Russian troops that occupied the city at the end of the second world war. Some sections were left as a souvenir.

A big room used by MPs between sessions. One wall in this room has a large painting and three open books. A reminder to the present MPs of the hundreds of members of parliament who were killed by the Nazis and another eight hundred that were persecuted or expelled at that time.

The last place is the Building's dome. A nice view of Berlin.
It is recommended to arrange the visit in advance online.

My parents were paying a visit to Berlin, and as my mum is very into politics, we decided to take a tour of the Reichstag. I booked us in two weeks in advance and the only slot left was 8pm on Friday night- so get in early! We had a very entertaining tour of the building and learned a lot (although my dad was disappointed that he didn't get to meet Ms Merkel). Got to catch the sunset from the top of the dome- beautiful!

Went through her with a group. This is not to be missed! Very organized. Very good self audio guide. Be sure to go to the top of the rotunda. Check out the roof and you can see the old bullet holes and patched ones on the masonry anchoring each corner of the roof.
