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