The country's center of political power, Reichstag Building houses the German Parliament. This grand building, designed by architect Paul Wallot in 1894, was renovated and reopened in 1999. Its glass dome, designed by architect Norman Foster, offers panoramic views of the city and is accessible by elevator. You'll almost always encounter a long line waiting for the elevator, especially on sunny days, so plan lots of extra time when visiting this site. Once on top, enjoy 360-degree views and listen to a free audio guide about the building and the surrounding city sites. You can visit the dome and get guided tours of the building only with confirmed reservations secured well in advance. Check the website for details on registering online or in person. Work out when and for how long to visit Reichstag Building and other Berlin attractions using our handy Berlin day trip planning site.

Reichstag Building reviews
A very beautiful and historic place in Berlin that you must reserve on the website in order to visit. There are plenty of areas for visitors, including a park with green trees. If you want the best... more »
A really nice building, you have to start thinking about history when you see this. Nice area with wide garden, even with a lot of visitors whole place is not congested. more »
Beautiful, someone history 🥰 the building is so beautiful 😍 I love it, a cool place just to sit rest and watch it for few hours 😀 more »
Stunning building, with lots of security. Audio was very informative about what was located outside and information about the building. Went to the cafe, which lots of people seem to miss. Glass top roof with a fabulous view. Well presented staff and all we spoke to spoke English and German. Which for us was fantastic. Coffee and tea available with delicious and large serving of cake. Will recommend to anyone.
Located near all other historical landmarks in Berlin. This is an amazing building with so much history. It is such as shame of the fire which we will never know who started it...plenty of security, which I can understand as it is an active Parliament building. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient. Make sure you take your time and enjoy the view up from the top of the landmark. The last Russian graffiti just takes you into what the people back then were going through and just makes us appreciate their sacrifice.
Amazing audio guided tour! I enjoyed every bit of it. Lots of history with great 360 views of Berlin! Special experience and is a must when you visit the city! You have to book it in advance and it's free which is amazing.
Great place to visit if your interested in the history of Berlin. I didn't go in sadly but there's a tour you can take inside which I'd say is pretty good. It was surreal actually seeing this building in person instead of on the big screen or in a video game.
We had a nice walk to the Reichstag along canals. We only visited the dome and we had a great rooftop view of Berlin. Quick and easy! I registered online 2 weeks before n avoided the queue for registration outside.
