Since 1999 the historic Reichstag-building in Berlin is the place of German parliament again. During the German division and GDR, the parliament had moved to Bonn in Western Germany. As a symbol of the German reunification in November 1989, the government decided to move back to Berlin – this also included the parliament, called Bundestag. Today, the Bundestag is the most popular house of parliament in the world. More than a million people visit the historical Reichstag-building every year. So, before you get lost, better join this guided tour!
Why is the German parliament that frequented? Definitely because of its dramatic history. Established in the 1870s, this building went through hard times: the imperial era, crisis, civil-war like conditions, two world wars, revolutions, the German division and the reunification after almost 40 years. All that left marks in the walls of this colossal building.
The top of the Reichstag-Building is covered with a spectacular cupola. From here, we have a breath-taking 360-degrees-view over the city of Berlin. And we notice, that the Reichstag is placed in a prominent neighbourhood: the Brandenburger Tor, Friedrichstraße station (former frontier station during GDR), Tiergarten, Platz der Republik, the Charité – your guide will inform you about the numerous places around.
Your licensed guide is looking forward to spend an unforgettable time with you, informing you about history and presence of Germany’s most important democratic institution.
