There is a lot to see and explore in Berlin, but since the Reichstag Building is one of the most visited attractions in Germany, I had to go and see it. As it stands today, after the reconstruction, which was completed in 1999, the building houses the Bundestag (German federal parliament). It's open to visitors, and it is worth going to the rooftop where there is a large glass dome. It has a 360-degree view of the surrounding Berlin cityscape. The parliament's main hall (debating chamber) below can also be seen from inside the dome, and natural light from above radiates down to the parliament floor. A large sun shield tracks the movement of the sun electronically and blocks direct sunlight. I am glad I went to see it, the views are great, and the dome's architecture is imposing. Below are a few photographs from my visit:
