What people are saying about Bundestag
First, let me say that the Reichstag and dome are wonderful. A must for any visitor and not to be missed. We're not German speaking, but all the free entry places and English speaking tours were fully booked when we tried the week before our trip, (Be aware that entry to the Reichstag is actually free and can be booked online with sufficient notice.) So we booked this tour in German which is one hour round the Parliament quarter (outside the Reichstag) with a tour guide, conducted in German, followed by entry to the Reichstag and dome, for which no guide is necessary and the dome has a free English audio guide. When we met the guide, he was very helpful and explained that he wouldn't have time to repeat his commentary in English (in which he was fluent), but we could skip the first hour, grab a coffee (or beer) and meet him outside the Reichstag entrance later. Perfect; we got what we wanted despite late booking and at a modest cost.
First a multi langual guide that, even on his birthday, would lead the group of 14 in an enthousiatic way around the reichstag buildings. Gave a lot of background information on the surroundings. Second the professional german guide of reichstag explained in a detailed but still humoristic way the proceedings of reichstag employees. Lastly a walk around the rooftop and dome with splendid view over Berlin. Explanation with free audioguide multiple (also dutch) language. Good value for maney, to skip the line when free tours are already sold out.
All in all this tour was every penny worth it... Eckie (Eckerhard) was the perfect guide. Funny and with great overall and personal historic knowlegde (Knowlegde of the german language is necessary on this tour. I translated to english my teenage son) We enjoyed the tour very much and the stay i the centre of the german political system. The "Kuppel" was fantastic.
Our guide Klaus was excellent. He has lived in Berlin from before the wall came down. He gave us a great perspective on the Reichstag and the history of Berlin. with lots of extra insider info. He was funny, charming and informative.. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Having photographs of before and after was a bonus. Arvid clearly wanted to show us the history behind the structures. Would recommend him as a guide to anyone. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour without being rushed.
