The Reichstag

Saturday evening we went and toured the Reichstag, the German capital building. It is primarily the building for the Budestag, one house of the the German congress. Our host were able to arrange a tour for us with a very good guide. Here are some pictures along wiht some text.

The room where the Budestat meets. Next week is their budget approval process!

The symbol of the Reichstag...

These are signatures and other information from Soviet soldiers who took the Reichstag back from Nazi hands in 1945. These had been covered up with some remodeling work in the 1960's and forgotten, but were found during some renovations in the 1990's.

The Brandenbug Gate (Tor) at night. This was the gate to the city in the 1800's when it was part of Prussia.
