Why locals love it

Walking up the shiny dome of the German parliament is one of the best opportunities to enjoy a free panoramic view of central Berlin. On top of Germany's centre of political power you have great looks of e.g. Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz and the Holocaust Memorial.

Why you should visit it

It's not only about the view from above. The construction of the dome was a masterpiece done by star architect Norman Foster. The 360 mirrors integrated in the dome reflect the light and illuminate the parliamentary chamber below. If you choose the right time for your visit you can watch their meetings from above.

Special tip

In order to get up you have to register online ( or at a temporary building close to the southern entry. Don't forget your ID card.

You need to be prepared and reserve a ticket in advance by submitting your passport details, so its not a spontaneous thing, but totally worth doing, fantastic building and concept from Norman Foster making democracy open and transparent

Be sure to get your free ticket before going, when we got there the wait was two hours plus so we didnt get to go inside.

Loved the view! You can also get on top off it for free and avoid the long waiting-cues by making sure you get your free ticket via the website before you leave to visit Berlin!
