Deutscher Dom

The history of parliamentary democracy in a baroque church

Exhibition: Revolution1848/49 – © Deutscher Bundestag

The German Cathedral (Deutscher Dom) on Gendarmenmarkt was built between 1702 and 1708 by architect Martin Grünberg. Destroyed in a fire in 1943, the dome was rebuilt in stages between 1982 and 1996, and now houses the permanent exhibition on parliamentary democracy of the German Bundestag.

The exhibition ‘Wege - Irrwege - Umwege’ (Roads - Meanderings - Detours) illustrates the historical development of the liberal parliamentary system in Germany on five floors. It focuses in particular on those eras in German history, during which the foundations for political order in the Federal Republic were laid.

Displays, documents, photographs and timelines provide an in-depth overview of parliamentary decision-making processes, and the function and methods of representative bodies. Visitors gain valuable insights into the creation, development and work carried out by the political parties in Germany.
