Berlin Wall 20 years later
October 31, 2009
The Reichstag, the current seat of the German Parliament, is one of Berlin's most historical landmarks. It is close to the Brandenburger Tor and before the unification, it was right next to the wall. .The building was constructed between 1884 and 1894. In 1933 fire broke out in the building, destroying much of the Reichstag. The Communists were blamed. It gave a boost to Hitler's Party, the NSDAP, who came to power.
