Parliament @ Reichstag

The Reichstag in Berlin, Germany is since 1999 the seat of the German parliament. It was built until 1894 by Paul Wallot and was already the Parliament of the Deutsches Kaiserreich and the Weimarer Republik.

In 1918 Philipp Scheidemann used a balcony of the building to proclaim the Deutsche Republik. In 1933 a fire at the Reichstag was used by the Nazis to prosecute their opponents. And in the 1945 the red flag was placed on top of the building.

The building contains a giant Bundesadler designed by Norman Foster and in front there is the huge flag of unity.
