Visits to plenary sittings

Visitors to a plenary sitting

(German Bundestag/photothek)

Watch a plenary sitting of the German Bundestag "live" from the public gallery of the plenary chamber. You will spend around an hour watching a Bundestag debate. Subject to parliamentary business, weather conditions and the security situation, you will then have an opportunity to visit the dome following the tour.

Please note that there is no interpretation service for plenary debates.

As we can only offer a limited number of places, please book in writing well in advance. Information on how to do this can be found here.

Visits to plenary sittings are only possible in weeks when Parliament is sitting, at the following times:

  • Wednesdays from 13.00 
  • Thursdays from 09.00 
  • Fridays from 09.00 

The visitors’ galleries can be reached via the West Portal, left entrance (West A).
