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.

  • Guided tour of Bundestag is a must do thing in Berlin. The guide was very knowledgeable and he told us about the entire history of Bundestag and Germany's parliamentary system. We were showed the marks left by soviet soldiers on the walls and the bulletmarks. He explained how the German parliament functions. We were lucky to see Reichstag dome, as it is not always accessible. We were given audio guide for the dome. We got some of the most beautiful views of the city from Dome!
  • Great guided tour hosted by Eberhardt - his ability and knowledge was fantastic and his humor warm and friendly. This is my third visit and every time has been different compared to previous tours. Will be visiting again soon to lean more about the architecture, history and the parliament 👍
