    Germany's historic federal parliament, beautifully restored in the 90's with the modern dome on top. Free reservation required a few weeks ahead to visit the interior and the dome. Romantic at sunset.

    If the tour of the dome is all booked up, simply make a reservation at the cafe upstairs instead. You will get the same access to the dome, plus they save the best seats in the cafe for you!

    The structure is a great sight with a view of Berlin from the top. Solar panels and expert architecture provide the energy. Found the tour a bit dry, id say its better to do your own exploring.
