The dome is open to the public and has panoramic views over the city. Access is by 2 steel spiralling ramps in double-helix form and the debating chamber of the Bundestag can be viewed below the dome. The dome symbolises that the people of the reunified Germany are above the government. Picture by Manuel Cohen
