The Plenary Chamber is the place where the German Parliament met from 1992 until 1999. The glass and steel building lies at the heart of the former government quarter in direct proximity to the Rhine.

With the transparent effect created by the glass construction, and its harmonious integration into the cityscape, the Plenary Chamber is considered to be one of the most beautiful plenary buildings in the world. It has capacity for 1,230 persons to meet.
