Although I had seen the dome before, I wanted to have another look whilst there on a recent break. You need to book a time-slot at the ticket office across the road from the Reichstag building, and slots are usually for the next day, or...More

Was so glad I booked the tour of the Reichstag Building. Our tour guide spoke really good english and was very informative during the tour. The end of the trip was to the dome which had great views across Berlin.

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

of some significant transformations, as well. The
