If you have an opportunity to trave to Europe, especially Germany, then take your time to visit Berlin. Many places are worth visiting, such as the Reichstag.
The Reichstag is an internationally recognizable symbol of democracy and the current home of the German parliament. Every year, thousands of guests visit the Reichstag-and with good reason: it is not often that you can enjoy such an amazing panorama while, just beneath your feet, the political decisions of tomorrow are being made. Both as an architectural wonder and a historical testimony, the Reichstag has an important role to play in Berlin.
The original building was designed by Paul Wallot and modelled after the Memorial Hall in Philadelphia. Decorative motifs, sculptures and mosaics were contributed by the artist Otto lessing. The Reichstag was completed in 1894 although it didn’t acquire its iconic dedication to “the German People” until 1916 when the words Dem Deutschen Volke were inscribed on its facade.
The Reichstag is easily accessible by public transport as it is situated just a short distance from Berlin’s main rail station, the Hauptbahnhof. The number 100 bus, which provides an unrivalled sightseeing opportunity along its route between the Zoo Station in the West and Alexanderplatz in the East, also stops at the Reichstag, as does the M41.
The nearest U-Bahn station to the Reichstag is the Bundestag. It is the middle station of only three stations on what is surely Berlin’s shortest U-Bahn line which runs between the Hauptbahnhof and Brandenburger Tor.
