Frustrating Visit
Oct 2020
A fantastic place from the outside but beware as you cannot see inside.
I went on the morning expecting to book for the afternoon or on the following day. Unfortunately I was told that you need to book on the internet at least 3 weeks before.
I did some research before I went to Berlin and never saw the 'book in advance' rules.

Bundestag Experience
Feb 2020
A visit to the Bundestag was of lifetime experience to me. Experiencing how citizens participate in parliamentary sessions inspired me a lot. The history of the building is very informative. Highly recommended.
Warm regards from Emmanuel Karake in Kigali,Rwanda

not bad

I liked sitting in the green in front of the Reichstag. There are so many tourists though that its best to really go out onto the green and get some personal space. It's the Reichstag, we all know the image so well. It's famous. Seeing it is surreal but less impressive than the Brandenburg Gate.

Iconic and a must visit

High security, very well organised and you can book online. Part of German and world history, the seat of government so it's a must. Really interesting place to visit.

Very impressive building.
We only saw it from the outside, unfortunately, but it's well worth the visit.
Not much else to do in Berlin anyway!

Visit the glass dome
Nov 2020 • Couples
This needs booking in advance.
It gave beautiful views across the city, and was interesting to learn about the development of it.
We would recommend going, mainly for the views.

Super Breakfast and spectacular views
Oct 2020 • Couples
Best way to see this amazing building is to book a meal at the Käfer restaurant on the top of the Reichstag. I booked breakfast. It was simply stunning. There was tons to eat, felt healthy as well as tasty, plus a glass of fizz included in the higher priced breakfast - well worth it. Spent 2 hours here. Walk around the top, and up the spectacular Norman Foster glass and steel sphere, for great views over the city. Arrive early for security checks.

High spot of our stay
Oct 2020
We visited at night ---the internal lighting was spectacular , the historical information exhibited on a huge circular table was just right --not too wordy. A must for tourists. Must book A.S.A.P.--fellow tourists on plane failed to get in.
