Much like the Brandenburg Gate, you cannot come to Berlin and miss this fabulous building. We did not have the time wait in line to go in and had not obtained a ticket in advance, so our experience was limited to being outside. It was...More

make sure you book and go early to avoid the queues, once inside and on the roof the view has the wow factor of Berlin being early you may miss the events on the inside but looking down into the chamber is great

It’s a short walk from Brandenburg Gate. You can see it from the Gate. So I walked over mainly because of the famous picture of the Red Army soldier waiving the Soviet Flag over the Reichstag in 1945.

You need to book ahead. Log onto their website and enter your details for security reasons. Take photo ID ie passport and get there at least 20 mins before you allotted time to get through security.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
