Situated at the Platz der Republik, the Reichstag is one of the city’s major sights. Destroyed in the Second World War, it was rebuilt, though initially without the dome. The impressive glass dome was only added later, when the Reichstag was extended to become the modern parliamentary building it is today. The Reichstag has been home to the German Bundestag – the country’s parliament – since 1999, making it one of Germany’s most important political sites. The dome and roof terrace can be visited by prior arrangement.
