The Bundestag is the German Parliament, located in the Reichstag Building in Berlin.
Visitors are allowed to visit the Rooftop terrace and the Dome constructed by Sir Norman Foster, which has become a prominent symbol of the reunited democratic Germany.
We had one of the coolest breakfasts ever–at the Käfer rooftop restaurant, with awesome views of Berlin.
Admission to the dome and roof terrace is free, but you have to register in advance (min 2 days) to avoid the long queue for walk-ins.
The Dome and Roof Terrace
Käfer Rooftop Restaurant
(TIP: Make sure to make a reservation in advance).
(Note: Germans are usually very conscious about privacy so they prefer to order one dish per person.)
The organic bread rolls, wholegrain bread, pastries, and croissants are served first with homemade jams, honey, and butter.
The natural yoghurt with fruit sauce and seasonal fruit salad is served on the side.
It comes with 1 glass GIO Secco, and 1 glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.
It’s actually a lot and good for sharing between 2 persons.
We ordered an extra omelette of 3 organic eggs with shrimps and dill sour cream. Really good, too. 🙂
The hot chocolate is creamy, a bit sweet and served in these cute cups with red beetles, which you can also buy as a souvenir.
(Trivia: Käfer means beetle)
You’ve got to have this Bavarian breakfast of steamed veal sausage, slices of meatloaf (like spam) with sweet mustard, Waldorf Salad, homemade Obatzder cheese, and a huge pretzel.
I highly recommend visiting the Dome, which is the symbol of German Reunification, seeing the panoramic rooftop views of Berlin, and eating one of the best breakfasts in Berlin.
I love the Käfer Feel Good Breakfast and the Käfer Bavarian Breakfast served only from 9.00am to 10.30am.
This is a can’t-miss experience so make sure to reserve at least 2 days in advance.
