The Reichstag the seat of the German Parliament is the symbolic building in Berlin. The Reichstag Berlin is an impressive building is worth a visit. But now sadly the Reichstag dome is close to walk-up visitors because of threats by Islamic extremists against targets in Berlin over Christmas. The building was destroyed by a fire in 1933, and then severely damaged during World War II. However, in 1994-96, the Reichstag turned into one of the most technologically advanced parliamentary buildings in the world. Its highlight is the outstanding glass cupola designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster.
