30.11.2016 - In November the decision was taken on the open competition for the construction of the new visitor and information centre of the German Bundestag (BIZ), which was divided into two phases. From a total of 187 participants, 28 made it through to the second round.
The new building in question will be erected to the south of Scheidemannstraße and west of Simson Weg in the Tiergarten area and will replace the provisional container unit in front of the Reichstag which is used for visitor security checks. In addition to the security measures, individual and group visitors to the BIZ will in future be introduced to the Reichstag with speeches, interactive role play, films as well as internet-based media. Guests can meet members of the Bundestag in the seminar rooms, dine in the bistro and purchase souvenirs in a shop. A visitor tunnel connects the BIZ with the Reichstag building.
All competition entries will be presented at an exhibition in the foyer of the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning from November 29th 2016 to December 14th 2016.
Location: Ernst-Reuter-Haus, Straße des 17. Juni 112, 10623 Berlin
Opening times: Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm
