The imposing Reichstag reflects Germany's past, present and future like no other building. It was constructed in 1884-1894 as the parliament for Bismarck's German Empire and has seen a century of German history. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, work began to return the building to its original purpose with a glass dome added by British architect Sir Norman Foster. Visitors can now climb up to the dome where there is a panoramic terrace, a photographic exhibition recounting the Reichstag's turbulent history and a rooftop restaurant.
Since I am traveling with a handicapped person, we did not have to stand in long lines. We got to use the handicapped accessible entrance which is to the right of the main entrance in the front of the building. Once we were at the top of the building by the dome, it was easy for my son to navigate up the ramp to the top of the dome.
I liked the history and the people were nice! I also enjoyed the culture and its atmosphere. The food, the people, the photo ops., it was all the best. I recomend this to anybody who loves history and culture. I would go here again in a heart-beat!!!!!!!!!
Of course, this is a must see of Berlin. At first we were put off by the long lines but actually it was very quick. The signpost says 'expect about 30min wait' and it took about 20. They let people in in bulks, like about 100 people at a time. Then they ask to go through the security check like in an airport, but all quick. Then the elevator takes you up. I advise to go at night to admire the night panorama and lights. There's a restaurant there but it's-naturally- expensive: a bowl of soup 11 euros.
A complete history on germany and it's many cultures. I loved the atmosphere and it's convenient. Definitely woth the cost. You should try to visit during the fall when the trees are at their best. Be sure to take lots of pictures. you'll want to remember this cultural and historical site in Germany's capital!
Impressive architecture. The Reichstag building is like the whole rest of the city: A great mixture of old and new. The view from the Reichstag dome is great. Berlin is definitely the greenest capital city I've ever seen. You can take a look into the parliaments chamber. And you can see from here the construction site of the new Berlin central station (hauptbanhof). Just another masterpiece of modern architecture.
Waiting and waiting and waiting to get in.
Nonetheless: It was definitely worth the time.
