Full description
Experience an informative tour perfectly suited for the politically interested. Start at Pariser Platz in front of the Akademie der Künste next to Hotel Adlon. At the beginning of the tour, hear stories about the Brandenburg Gate, Pariser Platz and the embassies from your guide. Get ready for an entertaining experience and travel back in time.

See the impressive buildings of the parliament quarter along the banks of the Spree, while you stroll down the streets to the Reichstag. Marvel at the main studio of the German television station ARD, the Reichstagspräsidentenpalais, the work spaces of the politicians, the memorial to the victims of the Berlin Wall, the former course of the wall, the parliament library, the federal press conference building, some artworks around the Bundestag and the Republic Square from which the modern building of the German Chancellery can be seen. On this part of the tour with a length of 900 meters, you will learn a lot about the surroundings and history of the headquarter of the German parliament.

After this tour you will enjoy a free presentation in the plenary hall, with a seat under the dome. Learn more about the tasks and duties of the parliament as well as the story behind a building that has played such a significant role in German history. Please note that this is a political presentation in German, that will not be translated and requires very good German skills.

The viewing terrace and the glass dome are definitely the highlights of this tour. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the television tower, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral, Berlin cityhall, Potsdam Square, Tiergarten, the embassies, German Chancellery, main station, the domes of Gendarmenmarkt and the synagogue, Victory Column, City West and Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Funkturm and others. When the tour is over, you may stay in the dome or on the viewing terrace and enjoy some free time.
Please note:

The building of the Reichstag may only be visited if all participants register for it prior to the activity. Please provide the following details for each participant: familiy name, name and date of birth. The visitor centre staff will only process requests when they include full, correct information.

Visiting the building is subject to the current working situation of the parliament as well as weather and security conditions. Therefore, a visit can't be guaranteed. Even after confirmation, your booking may be cancelled on site. If a tour is set to take place and the Bundestag cancels the visit to the dome on short notice, no refunds can be made.

The parliament, the Bundestag and the services of the visitor centre are tax-funded, which is why no entry fees will be charged. The Bundestag inside the Reichstags building, the glass dome and the roof-top terrace can be visited for free. Also, participating in presentations from the visitors' gallery and certain tours are free of charge. The price for the tour includes a tour with a professional guide, organisational matters and the registration at the Bundestag.
