In Berlin, the Reichstag closed its dome to visitors in 2010 due to terrorist bomb threats. The dome reopened in April 2011, but every visitor must register a few days ahead. As of March 2012, registration cannot be done by phone and must be done on the Internet or in person.

The dome is open 8 a.m.-11 p.m. daily. Admission is free, and a self-guided, 20-minute tour of the building and dome (using a free audio guide) begins every quarter hour.

When Parliament is not sitting, guided tours (in German) are available. For groups of six to 25 people, tours in other languages can be arranged. For info, visit www.bundestag.de.
