Visits can be booked online in advance or if you would like a more spontaneous visit you can be at the Service Center which is near the Reichstag in Scheidermasstrasse at 8am for same day tickets. Included in your ticket is the audioguide which gives the history of the Reichstag and describes the sights as you walk the 230 meter pathway to the top.

From the Reichstag Building it is an easy walk to Brandenburg Gate. Here you find sausage stands which makes it a delicious place for a picnic lunch.

From the Brandenburg Gate it is an easy walk to the Holocaust Museum.
