The Reichstag Dome is a rebuilt glass dome to symbolize the reunification of Germany.  The top of the dome has a 360 degree view of Berlin’s skyline or cityscape, whichever term you would like to use.  It’s magnificent piece of architecture where you could view the German Parliament; in addition, it symbolizes the German people are above the government, which is a contrast from the old Nazi Germany.

After I purchased my ticket, I walked to the entrance where a security screening was required.  I passed through the screening without an issue then the security lead the crowd an elevator.  Within the elevator, I heard multiple different languages and ascents from around the world.  There was a couple of Edinburgh, a group of friends from Argentina, Americans, and a few others.  It was a great feeling to be surrounded by a diverse group of people from around the world.

The elevator stopped.  Once the doors opened, we gazed upon the massive dome with a mirrored cone developed to be energy sufficient.  The mirrored cone was designed to be decrease carbon emissions from the building.  I made my way up the walkway to the top to catch a 360 view of Berlin.  The hints of lights around the city made me smile to realized I have finally made my way to Europe.

Germany is a contrast of what it was in the 1930s.   Europe is much different after two world wars with the European Union.  The free movement of its citizens to experience what neighboring countries have to offer in terms of food, landmarks and cultures.  The rest of the world could follow the EU’s lead and let its citizens roam freely in its region without prejudice.
