Open everyday from eight in the morning to midnight, Reichstag Dome is a prominent landmark located in Berlin. The dome is completely made of glass and it is constructed on top of the reconstructed Reichstag building. The dome has a diameter of 38 meters and a height of almost 24 meters. Designed by Norman Foster, a popular English architect, the unique design of the dome denotes the reunification of Germany.
Photos of Reichstag Dome
The photos of Reichstag Dome were taken during my visit to the Reichstag building. I was fascinated by the complex architecture of the dome, not to mention the beautiful view of the Berlin city too! There are no charges for visiting the Reichstag Dome, one simply needs to register two hours before the visit. Further, up to date information can be found on the website of the German Bundestag.
Since people visit the Dome for its view therefore it is best to visit the same on days having good weather. It is also advisable to use audio guides when exploring the Reichstag building, the dome and its surroundings in order to understand the history behind the building and other interesting facts. Audio guides are available in different languages, which make it convenient for tourists from all over the world. A delightful end of your visit, offers the restaurant at the dome's rooftop located towards the east.
