The Reichstag is a wonderful building. It's the home of the German Bundestag (Parliament) with a fascinating history. Most people visit to go up to the roof to see Berlin from the glass dome on top (and its free!) - it really is a lovely view over Berlin and you can also get an electronic tour headset (also for free) - they offer dozens of languages. If you're going to go up to the top, I'd suggest booking a tour as well (yep, free!) - the guides are knowledgable and interesting and have a good sense of humour. You need to book your tickets in advance if you want to visit - be it tour or just a visit to the dome. It’s really easy and you can do it on their website. You’ll need to provide names and birthdates of those who are coming, and you’ll have to bring your passports (or photo ID) on the day. They do tours in English or German.

A walk on the roof of the Reichstag is one of my best memories of Berlin. It was remodeled and opened again in 1999. The glass dome is not only architecturally beautiful but is symbolic of the transparency of the new German state. You can actually look down inside to the working government.

An interesting slice of German history, and perfumed with some of its darkest moments, the Reichstag building, with its enormous dome, is one of the most distinctive buildings in Berlin. Built to house the German legislature, the fire on its premises in 1919 was used as an excuse by the Nazis to suspend constitutional rights -- a sobering warning to the those willing to go to extreme measures in the name of national security. The excellent Holocaust Memorial lies nearby.

for me this has a little contra diction in it...on the grounds of Hitlers Reichstag... you will never ever visit Berlin without having your mind on the history. the new building has tours to walk in the glass tower. i still have to do that one.

Besides the obvious tourist attractions it is also worth a visit to the German parliament, Bundestag, for a free tour of the roof terrace and dome of the Reichstag Building. Entry is free but advanced registration is required. The building shows great views of the city with a free Audioguide.Recommended for:Vegetarian

Come for the history, stay for the amazing view. There was a bit of a line to get in, but it was worth it because the view of the city is spectacular. The glass dome features a spiral walkway that gives you a 360 view of the city. Excellent example of historical and modern architecture combined.Recommended for:History Buffs
