Reichstag Tips (18)


Favorite thing The Parlament from Germany it is next to Brandenburg gate. It is very impressive the big glass dome on top where you can enjoy a great view of Berlin (in a good weather day!)

Always queues, so we did missed this time, but Sandra went up.

Keep in mind the security check that it is very strict

Free entrance from 8am till midnight, everyday.

Would not have missed it

Favorite thing The Reichstag is a wonderful building.
Arrive very early to avoid the queues and have it more or less to yourself. No good going on a bad day as you want to enjoy the views and the wonderful light that comes into the building.

If you only do one thing . . .

Favorite thing Make sure you take the time to queue and go up to the roof of the Reichstag. The dome, designed by the British architect Lord Norman Foster, is a complex structure of steel and glass. It's accessible for the visitor free of charge by two ramps leading up from the roof terrace, offering an amazing panorama over the city of Berlin (open daily from 8 am until 12 pm). The dome houses the sophisticated ventilation and lighting systems for the assembly room. A funnel-shaped mirror system in its interior redirects the daylight into the assembly room 10 meters below. The redirection is accomplished by 30 rows of 12 mirrors each, resulting in 360 mirrors reflecting the sunlight. To avoid direct sunlight dazzling into the room, the mirrors facing the sun can be covered by a mobile sun-cover.

The Reichstag

Favorite thing It is the seat of Germany's national parliament. After being restored, it has now also a glass cupola. If you go there, you will have a nice view over Berlin. But please reserve enough time for that visit, because you maybe have to queue up for a while to get in. It was the same last week when I went there, so we decided not to go in this time. Instead I ended up on my knees in front of the building after a little playful fight with Cris lol People around us looked a bit as if we're crazy .... oh well *grin*

Platz der Republik 1
11011 Berlin-Tiergarten

Opening Hours
Observation of the dome: daily from 8a.m.- 12p.m., last entry at 10 p.m.

Thats not a memory of Berlin in general, but one regarding our Reichstag visit.

I know how the photo looks lol He tried to jump on my back. Come on, do I look so strong as if I could carry him? Be nice and say "no" hehe
As mentioned above the 'fight' continued and I ended up on my knees. There was an older couple nearby and I think we scared them lol

The Reichstag - Houses of Parliament

Favorite thing The Reistag is a symbol of democracy, power and a united Germany.

It was built by Bismarck, burned by Hitler and rebuilt by Norman Foster.

The Reistag was constructed between 1884 - 1894 as the parliament for the Bismarck's German Empire. It was built by Paul Wallot; it is an amazing monumental building, 137 metres long and 97 metres wide, designed in the style of a High Renaissance palace.
It was partially destroyed in 1933 and again more by the Soviets in the Battle of Berlin in 1945. Recently it has been fully renovated by British architect Sir Norman Foster to once again house the German Parliament (the Bundestag) and to commemorate this return to roots, it is now crowned by an awesome glass dome. The newly constructed metal glass dome over the parliamentary chamber offers good rooftop views over the city.

The queue to see this is mad!!!

For those intereested there is a lecture on German parliamentarism in history and present is held regularly in the plenary room of the Reichstag.
The lecture takes about 45 minutes and is held daily on the hour as long as parliament is not in session.

Advance booking is necessary.

Fondest memory The german Parliament building, the Reichtag, was designed by Paul Wallot and built between 1884 and 1894. The Social Democrat, Philipp Schiedermann, proclaimed the first democratic, parliamentary republic in this building on 9th November 1918.
The glass dome is opened for public but I hadn't had any time to visit it.

Reichstag Dome

Favorite thing Reichstag, another landmark of Berlin, has been the focus of momentous events in German history. In May 1999, it once again became the seat of the Bundestag, the German Parliament.

It was a British architect created this state-of-the-art parliamentary facility, preserving only the building's historical shell. Its most striking feature is a giant glass dome hovering above the plenary hall. At the centre is a mirror-clad funnel that reflects the light in myriad directions, which is quite funny.

Visit the Reichstaggebäude...

Favorite thing Visit the Reichstaggebäude Dome. It's located on the Northeastern corner or the Tiergarten. It is also called the Deutsch Bundestaggebäude.

Fondest memory Our fondest memory of Berlin was our view from the top of the Reichstaggebäude. There is an amazing dome on top and the view of the Tiergarten from there is stupendous!

My favorite structure in...

Favorite thing My favorite structure in Germany is the Reichstag in the former East Berlin. It was destroyed in WWII and not rebuilt until the 1990's. It's a very unusual building that its detractors claim is ugly but that many people (such as myself) find unique and appealing. It's something of a symbol of national unity for many Germans and offers some nice views of the city.

Fondest memory What I enjoy most in Berlin is simply being out on the streets, looking around, hanging out with friends at restaurants, etc. Like all big cities, the best way to experience it is to stroll around the neighborhoods and get yourself lost a little.
