Reichstag

Torched by Hitler, bombed by Britain and stormed by the Russians, the seat of German power has risen again as a symbol of a united and progressive Germany.

The Reichstag is one of Berlin’s most historic landmarks. Completed in 1894 following the establishment of the German Reich, the neo-Renaissance building’s role as the home of German Parliament was short-lived. In the 1930s, Adolf Hitler blamed a devastating fire in the Reichstag on a group of Communists and radicals, a pivotal moment in his journey towards total control. The building sat largely unused for the next 60 years. It wasn't until reunification that this grand piece of real estate was cleaned up, boldly redesigned and reinstated as Germany’s main seat of power.

Situated next to the Brandenburg Gate and facing the Tiergarten, it’s impossible to miss the commanding presence of the Reichstag building, which today stands as a symbol of Berlin's bright future. The futuristic, clear dome at the top was designed by Norman Foster and symbolizes Germany's political shift from tyranny to transparency. Open to the public, the dome is a reminder that the people “are above” the politicians that sit below. Rising up through the dome is a massive cone-shaped structure with mirrors that reflect light throughout the dome.

Collect a free audio guide and listen to the fascinating story of the building’s turbulent history and reconstruction. Or, take a guided tour for deeper insight into the way the reborn building seamlessly fuses art, futuristic architecture and ecologically sound principles. The building solemnly honors its past, too, by incorporating war-shattered walls and the graffiti left by victorious Soviet soldiers.

Admission to the building and the dome is free, but you need to register in advance. The last admission isn't until 10 p.m., so be sure to take in the views of Berlin lit up at night. The Reichstag also features a rooftop restaurant, but bookings are recommended.

Located in central Berlin, the Reichstag is easily accessible by tram, train and underground.
