The Reichstag building is one of the most historically important buildings in Berlin and the whole of Germany. It was home to both the Reichstag of the German Empire and the brief Weimar Republic and was built in the neo-Renaissance style from 1884 to 1894. In 1933 it was badly damaged by the famous and momentous Reichstag fire. Further damage followed in the Second World War. It was not until the 1960s that it was restored in a modernised form and later fitted with a filigree glass dome. Since 1999, the German Bundestag has once again been meeting in this historic building.
