The Reichstag is one of Berlin's most famous buildings. The seat
of Germany's parliament since 1894, the building has had a volatile
history, being damaged in World War II, wrapped in a sheet by
conceptual artist Christo in 1995, and being massively
reconstructed in the late 1990s. The reconstruction saw the
building gutted, leaving only the facade, and the addition of a
glass-domed atrium that provides panoramic views of Berlin. Note
that the rooftop terrace and dome of the Reichstag are closed to
visitors without pre-booking.
