Paul-Löbe-Haus

Lonely Planet review

The glass-and-concrete Paul-Löbe-Haus houses offices for the Bundestag’s parliamentary committees. From above it looks like a double-sided comb and on the inside there’s an atrium long enough to be a bowling alley for giants. It’s linked by a double footbridge to the Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus across the Spree in a visual symbol of reunification. Opening hours vary, depending on parliamentary use.
