Good breakfast locations are a dime a dozen in Berlin. But did you know that you can also have breakfast in the Reichstag? I show you here a very special idea for your next visit to Berlin!

Breakfast in Berlin

Probably no other city in Germany celebrates breakfast as much as Berlin. I’d like to be proven wrong, but I’ve never seen another city in Germany where you can eat breakfast around the clock. Finding a breakfast menu in cafés until the early afternoon hours is less the exception than the rule. And the range of dishes offered is huge. But if you really want to have breakfast in a fancy location in Berlin, you should stop by the Reichstag!

Breakfast at Käfer in the Reichstag in Berlin

You’ll probably be surprised: Breakfast in the Reichstag – where the Bundestag, the German parliament, usually meets? That’s right, because upstairs in the Reichstag there is a branch of the Munich-based delicatessen specialist Käfer. After a visit to the Reichstag, you can not only enjoy a fancy breakfast in the roof garden restaurant, but also a unique view over Berlin!

Especially in good weather and on weekends, the rooftop garden restaurant is really busy. That’s why you should definitely book in advance!

Don’t be surprised: When making a reservation, you must provide your name, date of birth and ID number. This is important because your reservation will be deposited at the bottom of the entrance and you will be allowed directly through the security gate.’ If the Reichstag is well visited, long queues can form at the entrance! But you’ll get in faster with a restaurant reservation. For this reason alone, breakfast at Käfer is a real insider tip to save time when sightseeing in Berlin!

What is the Reichstag?

The Reichstag in Berlin is the seat of the German Bundestag, the parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany. Opened in 1894, it was originally the parliament building of the German Empire. During the Second World War it was very destroyed and was without function until the fall of the Berlin Wall. From 1990, the Reichstag was again used for parliamentary sessions of the new all-German Bundestag.

The glass dome of the Reichstag

You should definitely take a look at the glass dome of the Reichstag. It was completed in the late 1990s as part of the major reconstruction work on the Reichstag. The funnel-shaped dome with many glass and mirror elements was designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster and is truly fascinating.
