This was our second visit this time we booked online in advance so much easier once you have got over the security checks (bring your passports) the design of the dome is amazing and the commentary is well worth it we visited at night this time so different views altogether doesn't take long but essential

Tried to book online but got as far as applying (1 week before ) to be told full and by time I'd re filled q in all slots go. You can book on day by queuing opposite the entrance . It can take a while before you get to booking office door and they only allow a small number in... More

Order tour tickets in advance. See how the renovation has made the Bundestag worth a detour. See German democracy in action

It is free to visit the Reichstag Building, but you have to book in advance on-line (up to 90 days), and provide your passport details. You will have to go through an airport style security check on arrival. We arrived in good time for our allotted time slot, and our booking checked etc. Very simple process and very well organised...

It's worth a visit, the river bank that runs alongside it also has some great modern architecture. Unfortunately I didn't get up into the dome, as I didn't register as it is a serious government building after all! The building itself is much bigger than the pictures do it justice. Go and have a look. I found that it was... More

Visit the Reichstag at night if possible as the views are best with the lights of the city on. Don't forget your ID.

You have to make a reseervation in order to get in the building, but it's worth seeing from the outside as well.

Three of us booked a tour, filled in all the paperwork, but when we arrived 45 minutes in advance ( as requested) were told it was closed that day. We never received any warning, or email, or apology afterwards. Do not waste time on this.

We booked a tour of the parliament 1 month in advance and still there weren't many hour slots to choose from. The tour is free and it lasts about 1h 30min and the guide is very nice and well prepared. Also, the remark to be 30 minutes before the tour starts is not just precautionary. Exactly 30 minutes before the... More

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.
