Best time to visit the Reichstag

Weekday vs Weekend

  • Weekdays are perfect for a more laid-back experience at the Reichstag with fewer people around. You'll find Monday through Thursday to be particularly peaceful, especially if you choose to visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
  • Saturdays and Sundays are busier, particularly midday. If you prefer a vibrant atmosphere and don't mind larger crowds, weekends offer a livelier experience.

Peak season vs Low season

  • Berlin bursts into life from late March to early October. Expect pleasant weather with mild to warm temperatures, perfect for exploring outdoor attractions like the Reichstag's rooftop terrace. However, this period draws the highest number of tourists, leading to longer queues for tours and admission.
  • Winter brings fewer tourists to Berlin, making this period ideal for a quieter, more contemplative visit. While the weather may be chilly, attractions like the Reichstag are less crowded, allowing for a more leisurely exploration. Additionally, slot availability is generally more flexible, and you might find last-minute bookings easier.
