What can you expect during a tour of the Bundestag?

The German Bundestag is the parliament of Germany, seated in Berlin. In the German Bundestag, new laws are debated and passed into legislation, political issues are heatedly discussed, and the work of the government is closely scrutinised. The Reichstag building is a masterpiece of architecture, consisting of a modern glass dome on top of a neo-renaissance building. The glass dome and the roof terrace can be visited free of charge- however, prior registration is required. If you want to make the most of your trip to Berlin, we recommend a guided tour which automatically registers you for access to the glass dome and the roof terrace.

Glass dome in the Reichstag

One of the most popular sights of Berlin is the Reichstag dome. It is located above the plenary hall, and the Glass Dome fills the space with a lovely, warm natural light- perfect for taking some holiday selfies. The glass dome is accessible from the roof terrace of the Bundestag via a circular ramp. The dome consists of approximately 3000 square meters of glass. Variously arranged mirrors ensure that direct sunlight is avoided. The glass dome offers a great 360-degree view of the capital.

Roof terrace in the Bundestag

To the east of the glass dome, is a roof terrace open to the public with its own restaurant. From there you have an even better view of Berlin's landmarks. If you would like to visit the Bundestag in Berlin, we recommend a cup of coffee or a morning brunch in the restaurant and enjoy the view.

Plenary hall / plenum

The plenary hall - also called plenum - forms the center of the Reichstag building. This is where the German Bundestag and the Federal Assembly meet. Most of the sittings are usually public, and with a little luck, you can sit and experience one. The architectural design of the plenary hall is intended to make politics transparent and visible. Each member of the German Bundestag has their own dedicated seat in this room. The eagle of the Bundestag is particularly striking in the plenary hall. The construction is almost 50 square meters in size and weighs about 2.5 tons.
