Sanssouci Palace, the summer residence of Frederick the Great, is its main focus. The relatively small palace with only 12 rooms was completed in 1747.

Platz der Republik 1, 11011 Berlin

webbundestag.de phone+49 30 22732152

The seat of the German Parliament is located near the Brandenburg Gate and former Berlin Wall (which was broken after the unification in 1989). Reichstag was completed in 1894 following German national unity and the establishment of the German Reich in 1871. During the reconstruction (which was completed in 1999) was erected the huge glass dome on the roof as a gesture to the original 1894 cupola, giving an impressive view over the city, especially at night.

In addition to the bust of Queen Nefertiti, whose original colour is preserved without restoration since the Amarna period, other pieces such as the sculptured portraits of the royal family and members of the royal court are also unique. The most significant work of the late period is the so called Berlin "Green Head" named after its greenish stone (ca. 500 BC).
