Der Reichstag, also known as the German Parliament Building was one of the attractions we visited on our recent trip to Berlin. Today, Bundestag or the German Parliament convenes in Der Reichstag.
This REALLY SHORT POST is written to highlight not the building but the glass dome at the top of it…
The glass dome offers visitors a paranomic view of Berlin but more importantly, visitors can oversee the parliament seatings through the glass dome to the parliament below.
*Do note that Reichstag tours are now only for prior appointments.*
According to our tour guide, there’s apparently a significance to the glass dome (besides raking in the tourist dollars that is). The glass dome ABOVE the parliament is a reminder to all statesmen that whatever they do, it is for the people. We were like “WOW”!
People of the nation above the parliament. Cool.
