Booked on line with passport details for security. Arrived at our allotted time and were checked in. You do need to take your passports with you. Although there were lots of people there it was well organised with lift access to the dome. Earpiece commentary...More

Although they do not charge for entrance, you need to get there very early enough as the line to get a pass is very long. They only allow a 100 slots per hour but your allowed to spend up to 1.5 hours to go around....More

Book in advance. Have your passport ready as you have to enter through security to the building. Restaurant offers a Great view, not exceptional food.

Add this to your list of things to do in Berlin! It’s free (make sure you pre-register online for security) and very informative. The views over Berlin are excellent and architecture of the dome is amazing. You get given an audio guide, which automatically plays...More

We forgot to book ahead and had to book a slot and revisit when the next available time came up. You will also need photo ID, so be sure to take that along. You can get great photos inside the glass dome and I’d recommend...More

We took a guided tour of Reichstag. The guide was great. Told some good stories. However for me it was not great. May be I had bigger expectations. The tour does not go inside the parliament house itself but around and on top of it.

You buy a timed ticket a day or more in advance ( it’s free of charge) and need to show government issued photo ID at the time of purchase and upon entry. And then they do a full metal screening at time of entry. If...More

Quite astounding. A must. Easy to book tickets in advance, and the views alone are worth the trip. A leisurely stroll up to the top where you can gaze at the sky. We did at night: would do again in the dayime.

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

Hi. I don't believe you get access to the building at all without a reservation as it's an operational government building. You will be able to see outside the cordons but they are a reasonable distance away. Don't try to... More
