Germany - Reichstag Building

Reichstag Building - Berlin - Germany - Building - Bundestag - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The Reichstag Building is one of the most well-known landmarks in the centre of Berlin. This building was opened in 1894 and until it was partly destroyed by fire in 1933 it saw a lot of political dramas. In 1933 the fire in the Reichstag was used by Adolf Hitler to gain full power over the German political system. The building was badly damaged during World War II but is now restored and is used by the German parliament - Bundestag. It is possible to visit the building - but be aware that the queue can be very long.
