The fact that you can book a free trip up the done,neither a free audio guide, see the whole of Berlin and learn about the history of the city? What's not to like? Did the tour at night and it was amazing.

To visit, you should pre book. This is easy to do, online. An excellent place to spend an hour or so. The climb up inside the glass dome is easy, as it's a gentle spiral slope. There is a restaurant (which l think you have to pre book) and a small pop up style coffee stand. The toilets are clean... More

We did the tour of the Reichstag Building Dome. You have to book in advance in order to reserve a specific time slot for your visit and in order to specify the details of the persons who will be visiting. The security check takes quite a while, so arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled visit. Once you get... More

Been the one morning just to walk around the glass dome. It was a great experience. To enter Bundestag you go through airport type security check which is reasonable these days. It was definitely worth the wait.

Did bike tour day before and returned to Reichstag to climb the dome. Had to register online and bring ID for permission to enter. Security tight - some fabulous spiralling up to the open top. Didn't realise it was open air and snow flowing in made it cold but exhilarating. Great free audio commentary as walking to top seeing key... More

To visit the Reichstag you need to make a reservation in advance. This is done in the building opposite and doesn't take long. Once inside, there is a great audio guide tour. If you don't want to use the guide, it is still worth visiting for the great views.

We did a tour of the Reichstag. Our guide was friendly and very informative. One of the most interesting parts of the tour was the wall that still had writing from Soviet Soldiers from 1945. Weather permitting you go to the dome at the end of the visit. I definitely recommend doing the Reichstag tour of seeing the dome alone.... More

The tour was great a kind gentleman did the tour for FREE! Listen attentively and read the descriptions of the various pieces within the museum to really get a feel of the significance of the building. The dome at the top is pretty impressive too although the restaurant did look rather extravagant which deterred us from entering as we just... More

Must see. When you visit you can still see the wholes in the solid stone inflicted by the Russian army. It's just beautiful and packed with history. A place to take in like few others. On a sunny day you can spend your time on the lawn in front of the building

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
