    If you are going to view the dome you are in for amazing views of Berlin. You should know that it's open air though so dress appropriately! Oh yeah the audio guide is definitively worth it and free.

    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.

    The Reichstag's impressive Dome is very popular so plan your trip at an off-peak time to avoid huge lines - maybe a Sunday or Weekday evening. It's open until 10pm! Check out our post for more tips! Read more

    You can get a ticket across the street at the box office, but the queue is usually very long. Try booking online at least 4 days in advance: http://www.bundestag.de/htdocs_e/visits/kuppel/kupp/245686

    Be sure to get the free audio guide. It’s fantastic as it not only informs you about the Reichstag itself but also points out many things about other landmarks you can see from the dome.

    Remember to register online before going as the security is quite tight. The free audio guide is fantastic as it points out many attractions in Berlin that you can see from the dome of Reichstag.

    It is worth the queue to sign up for invitation form to go into the dome. The view is beautiful from inside the dome. Don't forget to ask for audio guide to learn more about Berlin.

    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.

    Is the building where the German federal parliament, Bundestag.This dome is one of the best attractions for tourists as it is open for visitation (for free), it has an impressive view of the city.

    Make sure to get your hand on someone who works in the Bundestag: we're allowed to take up to 6 people to all the place and other buildings with underground passages tourists aren't allowed to go ;)

    The dome is an absolute must if you come to Berlin. Book in advance on the official website and don't forget to take the audioguide when upstairs. Great panorama of the whole city!

    Don't be too discouraged by the line to reserve tickets. Grab a beer from next door and relax. Most assuredly they will hand you a blue vip pass after a short wait when the traffic lessens.

    It was opened in 1894 and housed the Reichstag until 1933, when it was severely damaged in a fire. A full restoration was made until after German reunification on October 3, 1990 by Norman Foster.

    The free guided tour was interesting, short and crisp. Do book months in advance. Worth the visit. Free tour, free entrance, free view from the wonderful structure. A must!

    Crowning the Reichstag building is a gleaming glass dome designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster, and the perfect perch for savoring city panoramas. Free audio guides available.

    Your possessions are x-rayed before you can go inside, like at an airport. I'm also not entirely sure if it's legal to check in inside, so be careful when you do. Great view from the dome, though.

    Too much visitors. At 3pm only have a chance to get in at 7, just to get the registration you need to stand more than half hour in the queue. Register online if you can.

    I recommend taking the tour. It takes a bit over an hour but you can learn much about the building's history (ask questions).
