What to bring
  • Passport or ID card
Not allowed
  • Luggage or large bags
Know before you go
The German Bundestag requires the full name and date of birth of all visitors for registration, which is taken care of for you by the tour operator.

Please provide your phone number so that you can be informed of any last-minute changes.

Please bring your passport, ID, or driver's license for the security check. Copies, bank cards, and health insurance cards are not valid.

In cases of bookings on very short notice, the visit to the Reichstag is not guaranteed. This is because, in some rare cases, the German Bundestag may reject an application. While this seldom happens, please be sure to include a mobile phone number so you can be informed.

If the minimum number of 6 participants is not reached, this tour will not operate and you will receive a refund. You will still be able to visit the glass dome without a guide. Entry fees do not apply to anything inside the Bundestag because the parliamentary seat is funded by taxes.

Great views of Berlin from an amazing building

Interesting and informative guide. We did run into problems getting in due to entrances being blocked off and security guards deployed at one every entrance due to events happening on the day. The guide was determined to get us in and did not give up which many others may have done. It was almost two tours in one. Gave us an idea how it must that been to get over the wall before it was torn down. Lol. The building itself is stunning and a great deal of thought has gone into it from an architectural and functional point of view. The views a stunning. Well recommended. I. Would have giver it five stars if not for the entrance problems but that was definitely not the fault of the tour guide.

English guide best way to learn about the Brandenburg Gt & Reichstag

An excellent tour, knowledgable guide. He was a Berliner & of the age when the divided city had a great impact on his life so was able to give us a real insight into those times. He was so knowledgable about the actual Dome & gave us a lot of background information.

Very informative guide, who had excellent English. He was able to steer the group through the demonstration and road closure due to security measures without any hassle. I was very impressed with the email updates re the meeting point due to said security measures
