Muslims visiting the Reichstag Building will not be able to find prayer facilities within its premises. The city of Berlin is however said to be home to over 70 mosques and prayer facilities, with the Berlin Mosque being the oldest mosque in the country. Muslim visitors to the Reichstag Building could therefore ask building staff to direct them to the nearest mosque when needed.
As mentioned above, there is a restaurant located on the rooftop of the Reichstag Building. While Muslims will not be able to find Halal certified food served here, they will be able to find plenty of seafood and vegetarian dishes to dine on. They should however make sure that the dishes they order do not consist of any non-Halal items, like alcohol. For those looking specifically for Halal restaurants; there are quite a number of these establishments in the city of Berlin.
