Explore the heart of the German Republic
Berlin is a focal point for Germany's national politics, with a number of beautiful buildings devoted to governance. Housed in the new government district, the German Chancellery is a gorgeous feat of modern architecture, with a glass façade and an open day every September. The Berlin State Parliament is the seat of regional politics, with free tours and specialised visits for schools, as well as a beautiful neoclassical exterior. The Rotes Rathaus (Red Town Hall) is another key political landmark in Berlin, while the iconic Reichstag building is home to the German Federal Parliament. Its stunning glass dome, designed by architect Sir Norman Foster, can be visited free of charge.
