Interesting building, however was unable to see interior of building due to summer updating and cleaning while parliament was out. Great that we were able to get in, not sure how easy it would be without tour because they booked the building security for entrance. Really a must see in the evening- city lights and so much cooler. Inside the dome can get pretty warm and stuffy....

It is difficult to get 17 members of any group, let alone a group of family members, to show up on time and generally cooperate. Our guide was patient and engaging and kept us moving. He showed us some things we might have missed on our own and shared his families as own experiences as Germans before and after the Wall came down.

A superb tour, made even better by our guide, Arvid. He was so knowledgeable and obviously very proud of his country and his city. He never rushed us and was always prepared to stop and answer our questions. The content of the tour was perfect and we left the tour fully aware of all aspects of the Reichstag.
