The Reichstag building is the traditional seat of the German Parliament, renovated in the 1950s after severe Second World War damage. The building was again remodeled by British architect Norman Foster in the 1990s and features a glass dome over the session area, which allows free public access to the parliamentary proceedings and magnificent views of the city.
Berlin Zoo is one of the larget in the world and contains more animal species than any other including pandas.
The Museum Island contains many world class museums and also Berlin Cathedral and it itself a UNESCO world heritage site.
The cities transport system is second to none and consists of a large network of underground metro lines and an overground system too. Trams in East Berlin and busses in West Berlin supplement this as the city is so large walking is sometimes a problem between the major sites.
