Located to the north of Branderbuger Tor, the Reischtag has been the seat of the German Bundestag or parliament since April 1999 after a complete renovation by Norman Foster. The British architect has modernized the building, keeping only the historic structure and adding the most contemporary striking element, the glass dome that rises above the chamber. The dome can be reached by elevator, but not before saving the queue to pass security check, once sales of the elevator you can take a free audio guide which gives you lots of information and enjoy of views that Berlin shows.

Situado al norte de la Puerta de Branderburgo, el Reischtag ha sido la sede del Bundestag o parlamento alemán desde abril de 1999, tras una renovacion completa hecha por Norman Foster. El arquitecto britanico modernizó el edificio, conservando unicamente la historica estructura y añadiendo su elemento contemporaneo mas llamativo, la cúpula de vidrio que se alza sobre la sala de plenos. A la cúpula se llega en ascensor, no sin antes guardar cola para pasar el control de seguridad, una vez sales del ascensor puedes coger de forma gratuita una audioguía la cual te facilita mucha información.
