    The Reichstag building has been the seat of the German Bundestag since 1990. On October 4, 1990, the first session of the all-German Parliament, consisting of the Bundestag and the Volkskammer, took place in the plenary hall. Almost three months later, the first constituent meeting of the All-German Bundestag took place in the Reichstag building. The vote on the future seat of government fell on June 20, 1991 in favor of Berlin.

    The Reichstag building was built from 1884 to 1894 according to the plans of Paul Wallot. With the proclamation of the German Empire in 1871, Berlin became the capital of the Reich. The newly formed parliament now needed a seat of government. Wallot combined elements from the Renaissance, Baroque and Classicism to make his building appropriately representative and monumental.

    The gable inscription "Dem Deutschen Volke", which is still preserved today, was added in 1916. After the war, the severely damaged Reichstag was not used for the time being. The dome had to be blown up in 1957 for static reasons. A first conversion began in 1957 by Paul Baumgarten. Baumgarten glazed the plenary hall and pushed back almost all the historic features of the building.

    The Reichstag building is the seat of the German Bundestag and one of the most visited sights in Berlin. The glass dome in particular is an attraction for Berliners and tourists.
    The Reichstag building has been the seat of the German Bundestag since 1990. On October 4, 1990, the first session of the all-German parliament, composed of the Bundestag and the Volkskammer, took place in the plenary hall. Almost three months later, the first constitutive session of the all-German Bundestag took place in the Reichstag building. The vote on the future seat of government fell on June 20, 1991 in favor of Berlin.

    Significant turning points and events in German history are associated with the Reichstag building. On November 9, 1918, the SPD politician Philipp Scheidemann proclaimed the republic from the balcony at the west portal. On the evening of February 27, 1933, the "Reichstag fire" occurred. The plenary hall and the dome were completely destroyed. A red flag of the Soviet Union, hoisted by two Red Army soldiers on April 30, 1945, symbolized victory over the "Third Reich".

    The Reichstag building was built between 1884 and 1894 according to plans by Paul Wallot. With the proclamation of the German Empire in 1871, Berlin became the capital of the empire. The newly created parliament now needed a seat of government. Wallot combined elements from the Renaissance, Baroque and Classicism to make his building appear appropriately representative and monumental. The still preserved gable inscription "Dem Deutschen Volke" was only added in 1916. After the war, the badly damaged Reichstag was no longer used. The dome had to be blown up in 1957 for structural reasons. A first conversion began in 1957 by Paul Baumgarten. Baumgarten glazed the plenary hall and pushed back almost all of the building's historic features.

    On October 30, 1991, the Council of Elders of the Bundestag decided that the historic Reichstag building by architect Paul Wallot from 1894 should be restored and used as the seat of an all-German parliament. The ruins of the Reichstag building were rebuilt in the 1960s, but were not used as a parliament building.
    The British architect Sir Norman Foster was awarded the contract to convert the Reichstag building after the capital city decision after an international architectural competition. In June 1994 he presented his revised draft of the Reichstag project. This provided for the design of a modern parliament building that respects the history of the Reichstag building and at the same time implements a forward-looking energy concept. The former Reichstag building was redesigned into a modern working parliament that meets all the requirements for the latest communication, office and workplace technology.
