Planning to visit Reichstag? See our information below!
One of the most famous and beautiful sights in Berlin is the Reichstag. With its massive architecture and futuristic glass dome, this is an amazing building.
Built in 1894, the Reichstag has been through a lot in the 20th century. It has since been burnt down, bombed, rebuilt, walled and packed in dust. This (lit) fire was at the beginning of World War II. It was only after the fall of the Berlin Wall that the Reichstag was restored again. Today, the building is mainly used for plenary sessions of the Bundestag (the German parliament).
Besides being used for plenary sessions, anyone can visit the building. You can take a guided tour or explore the building on your own. The highlight is the building’s breathtaking glass dome. But mainly the view from the roof terrace is a must see!
The Reichstag is open every day of the year from 08:00 AM to 12:00 AM. The exterior of this beautiful building can be admired at any time.
