To visit the Parliament Building, you need to apply in advance on the official website of the Parliament. You can choose to visit the dome freely (including voice guides) or a 90-minute guided tour including the inside of the Parliament. Since the application was late (about two weeks in advance), only the dome was applied for. Show confirmation letter, pass security inspection, and be led by staff. Through the front facade of the Parliament Building, the towering Ionian pillar rises to the ground. Above it is a wall similar to the Greek temple. The lintel says "DEM DEUTSCHEN VOLKE" for the people of Germany. Through the classical porch, into the modern hall, take the elevator to the upper dome. First, take the Chinese phonetic guide, and then go up the spiral path. At the center of the dome is a funnel-shaped cylinder covered with 360 mirrors to reflect sunlight and provide natural light and heat to the interior. These mirrors can also be adjusted by computer control to achieve maximum efficiency. The dome is a large opening. Although the rainwater enters the room directly, it will not affect the parliamentary meeting hall at all through the inner pipe of the column, but can play the function of centralized rainwater reuse. An All-transparent dome opens up a 360-degree view of Berlin; if it's not rainy, it should be an excellent view. But even on rainy days, through the introduction of voice guidance from one step to the next, from the dome to the four sides, the solemn Brandenburger Tor, the modern BolLin Railway Station, the winding spur River, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower in Berlin, "deep autumn" the imperial garden, and the unified German flag flying on the conference hall, the 360 degree panoramic new Berlin is being launched in the near future. The building itself can feel the vitality of New Berlin and New Germany.
To visit Congress, you need to make an appointment. Please make an appointment in advance to facilitate the visit. It's only the sphere part that's open. It's the work of British designers. The design is exquisite. Visitors can walk up the sphere with the top open and the Congressional hall can be seen in the glass below the sphere. Below the sphere is an introduction to the Capitol Building. This is not a new building, but a combination of old and new. It should be noted that the original building of the German Parliament Building was badly damaged during World War II. After reconstruction, it retained the outside, merged with the new part and added the spherical part.
The lawn on the east side of the Capitol is where successive presidents hold inauguration ceremonies. The Capitol Building on Capitol Hill stands on the lawn. The cylindrical portico under the dome of the Capitol is magnificent. There are three copper "Columbus Gate" in the portico. It has a relief of Columbus's discovery of the New World. Inside the door is the circular hall of the Capitol Building. In the circular hall, you can see the epitome of American politics. The circular hall is surrounded by eight oil paintings recording American history. The 55-meter-high dome is a large painting by the 19th century Italian painter Bremedi and his students. The center of the painting is Washington, the founding president of the United States. On the side of Washington, the goddess of victory and freedom respectively. The other 13 goddesses in the picture represent the 13 states of the United States. Each of the outstanding presidential stone carvings in the hall is an era. There is also a special sculpture hall on the south side of the circular hall, which is a joint Hall of celebrities from 50 states in the United States. It is a symbol of American cohesion.
It is suggested that the Capitol Building in 1884 itself is a tortuous and heavy history. Its dome was destroyed during World War II. After the reunification of Germany and Germany, it was creatively restored to a glass dome. Although its appearance is simple and solemn, it has a modern core. Its facilities are very advanced. What impresses people most is the environmental protection of the building! ___________ This is also the most favorite Berlin architectural landscape - the aesthetics of architecture, dignified history, environmentally friendly and efficient technology, power and supervision of the concept of the German Parliament in one.
The Reichstags Geb 228; ude, built in 1884, can be said to be a microcosm of modern German history. The famous "Parliamentary arson case" happened here. It was destroyed during World War II and destroyed after the split of Germany. It was not until the reunification of the two German countries that it became the parliament building again. The original damaged dome was replaced by a modern glass dome. I don't know that this design was not influenced by the Louvre Pyramid designed by I. M. Pei. At dusk, the Capitol Building is so charming that you will have to admire the ingenuity of the design, especially the dome is open-air, even if it rains, it will not affect the use of the building.
A place worth visiting! The Capitol Building brings us not only the history, but also the perfect demonstration of German science and technology. Or is it the complete presentation of the humanistic spirit of German society? Once in, it's the model of Berlin's main buildings. It's unforgettable that there are Braille signs on every building model! Then there are some remnants of World War II soldiers'messages. Let's see the witness of history again! Perfectly embodying technology is the self-adjustable reflective glass at the top of the parliamentary hall, which helps to illuminate the hall. There are many kinds of solar energy equipment for building use! So here is the masterpiece of the world's ecological architecture!
Architectural design can only be described by shock. Eyes are not enough from the inside to the outside. The exhibition design is amazing. It only takes more than an hour to quickly browse the centuries-old history of Germany, the rise and decline of Hitler's national socialism, the occurrence and end of World War II, the division and unification of East and West Germany, and the rapid development of the economy of a unified democratic Germany.
Great views across the city with interesting tour guide included free of charge!
The Berlin Parliament Building is a perfect combination of classical and modern architecture. Its appearance is typical of Roman architecture, simple atmosphere. The interior is a modern steel structure, the facilities are very advanced, it feels like a science and technology building, full of sense of passage.
In September, it's dark and early. It's better to make an appointment before 7 p.m. to see the surrounding vision. My appointment at 8 p.m. is too late. It's half an hour to go to the roof of the house below and it's completely dark. It's not clear around. There are only some lights, preferably at 7 p.m. The sunset is also in the west. Well done! It's worth visiting and learning a lot about German political history.
