After the newest reconstructions you can go up in the tall glass dome of the Reichstag. The Reichstag is the house that houses the german parliament and was built in 18-84-1894. The Reichstag is packed with history , from the fire that was used by the nazis to eliminate their communist opponents to the in the way to power.

You can now go up in the glass dome to enjoy a great view over Berlin , but be prepared to stand in line for quite a long time since this is a free(!) and spectacular tourist attraction. To beat the crowds go early in the morning og late in the evening, its open until midnight. There is much information about the Reichstag in form of both pictures and text.

If you visit during daytime you can actually see the parliament of Germany have their meetings about Germany's future. The purpose is that the politicians only have to look up to be reminded that the people are in charge.

If you're hungry you can also eat in a pretty expensive restaurant on the top floor.

Dont worry my friend. There are many places that ive not been in Norway as well. It just doesnt have the same appeal. But in summertime im certainly going to take my tent and buy a months pass on the coastal express and spend 1-2days in each small charming coastal city. I'll light a Marlboro 100 just to honor you :)

I think this is one of the most famous building in Berlin and especially it's beautiful.

My opinion is worth looking at more than one time!

The reichstag and its dome are definately one of must-see things in Berlin. When you go to the BRandenburg Gate, you can see this shiny dome/cupola, which looks as if it was all made out of glass, sitting at the top of the Reichstag building and looking al pretty at the side of the waving German flag.

It is a viewing plataform where you can see both, a panoramic view of the city and also have a look at a little part of the inside of the building. You'll probably have to wait in line for some time, but it is definately worth the wait. Once you get past security and into the elevator, you'll be ejoying yourself while walking around the dome and on the way up.

Like the other guy said, you'll have to wait outside for a while, but once you get inside it is only a matter of getting through security.

The new Reichstag dome is well worth a visit, not least because of the views that you get from the roof of the Reichstag. The dome itself is a fascinating construction, and I would class it as one of the must-see sights of Berlin, not so much for the experience itself, good though that is, but because it is rapidly becoming iconic of the new Germany: everyone will expect you to have seen it.The experience itself, however, includes getting in, which can be problematic: if possible avoid the peak hours of mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Anticipate having your bags and person searched and screened. In any event, be prepared for a wait and have contingency plans in case your commitment to dome-viewing dissipates at the sight of the queues. Incidentally, all queuing is out-of-doors, so if it rains you get wet.
