The imposing Reichstag reflects Germany's past, present and future like no other building. It was constructed in 1884-1894 as the parliament for Bismarck's German Empire and has seen a century of German history. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, work began to return the building to its original purpose with a glass dome added by British architect Sir Norman Foster. Visitors can now climb up to the dome where there is a panoramic terrace, a photographic exhibition recounting the Reichstag's turbulent history and a rooftop restaurant.
Fantastic views over the city.
Excellent organistion to enable huge numbers to visit in a controlled way.
Very impressive piece of architecture by Norman Foster.
If you don't already know the history, however, the standard tourist visit doesn't tell you much.
One of the highlights of our vsisit to Berlin.
At this remarkable piece of architecture, I learned: "It is a man's obligation to stick his boneration into a woman's separation, this kind of penetration will increase the population of the younger generation." Other than that though, the place kind of sucked. THe artwork was like somebody crapped all over the floor in different colors and stirred it up with a spoon.
