- Passport or ID card
Please provide your phone number so that you can be informed of any last-minute changes.
All visitors (except children) must bring a photo ID for the security check.
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.
