Beyond Borders

BERLIN, Germany (Big 2/FOX 24) – The Reichstag building is one of the most important historic buildings in Germany. It was completed in 1894.

It serves as the meeting place of the German Bundestag which is the National Parliament.

The Bundestag is now composed of 709 members and was established back in 1949.

It can be compared to the United States House of Representatives.

Germany is half the size of Texas. There are only 16 federal states in that country.
