    During the Weimar Republic - from 1926 to 1933 - the square once bore its current name to document the abolition of the monarchy in this prominent place. With the "seizure of power" by the National Socialists, he was renamed in Königsplatz.

    The last battles of the Second World War took place in downtown Berlin, as a result of which the Reichstag building and the Republic Square in front of it were badly damaged. When the war debris was removed, the bomb and grenade funnels on the square were also filled with ruins. [2] After the National Socialist period ended, in 1948 it was given the republican name again.

    In the Reichstag is the German parliament. The over 80 year old building offers a very, important, history to this.

    Class building! You can book tours or just go to the dome. From there almost as much as from the TV tower.

    The visit of the dome is recommended. In the summer but should be scheduled some time.

    Along the shipping canal from Spandau to Berlin-Mitte you can get almost to the city center by bike on an excellent bike path.

    Even in the evening, the entire area in the government district can be explored on foot or by bike.

    Built in the Tiergarten district by Paul Wallot in the neo-Renaissance style from 1884 to 1894, the building on the left bank of the Spree housed both the Reichstag of the German Empire and the Reichstag of the Weimar Republic. After severe damage from the Reichstag fire in 1933 and in World War II, the building was restored in a modernized form in the 1960s and fundamentally redesigned from 1991 to 1999. ... In the Second World War, the building with bricked-up windows served as an air-raid shelter. AEG produced electron tubes there, a hospital was set up and the gynecological ward of the nearby Charité was moved here - a few hundred Berliners were born in the Reichstag building. ... During the division of Berlin, the Reichstag building was in the British sector. The Berlin Wall ran directly on the east side of the building. The "lonely, shot Reichstag" became a symbol - as a "sandstone colossus in the no man's land between the hostile world systems"
