Regierungsviertel

The Regierungsviertel is not just the heart of Germany’s political landscape but also a striking area of contemporary architectural achievement, with the Reichstag and modern government buildings lining the Spree. An interesting detail: the Chancellery building is one of the largest government headquarters in the world, often nicknamed “The Washing Machine” by locals due to its unique design.
