Berlin Reichstag visit

If we just want to go up the dome, should we go during the day or at night? Seems like it might be beautiful at night with all the lights of the city.

Lola, I went while it was light and enjoyed the view. Since I haven't been up after dark, I can't compare it to the view at night. However, if you do have the possibility of taking the Reichstag tour in addition to the dome visit, I highly recommend it. I thought the tour was outstanding.

Thanks for responding, Laura. Unfortunately we have very limited time in Berlin; I added it on at the last minute so we will have two nights and a full day. So the more we can shift to evening the better. That is why I was wondering about a night visit to the Reichstag. I don't think we have time for the full tour no matter what.

Sunset is an ideal time, but I think Berlin would look pretty fabulous from the dome at night as well.

I was in Berlin in July this year and also wanted to see Reichstag. Unfortunately I did not make it. You have to book it ahead on line. When I tried everything was booked for that day and even the next day. So to be safe book it ahead.

Thanks. I will book it well ahead, as it looks like sunset is a popular time.
