  • The building is impressive and worth visiting. A failure is there is no external indication stating what it is.

  • Some incredibly beautiful buildings which is clearly worth a visit. We were there the day the Reichstag opened so there was naturally plenty of flags and police.

  • I have zero confidence in politicians! However, I like the building and the site very much! Quiet, nice and cozy!
