Electricity has been cut to the German parliament (Bundestag) and many public buildings and landmarks in the German capital, Berlin, due to the energy crisis.

And it was dark last night, for the first time, in the state assembly in the central district of Berlin. There are other institutions such as Berlin Cathedral or the “Lustgarten” park, where the power outages have continued since last (Wednesday), and it is expected that this will happen in other buildings.

The Senate administration announced that it was responsible for 200 buildings that were no longer lit at night, including the Victory Square Column, Red City Hall, and Charlottenburg Palace.

The Senate administration said the lighting will be dimmed gradually over the next three to four weeks, adding that about 1,400 light bulbs are in operation.

Electricity costs about 40,000 euros ($40.9 thousand) a year in institutions supervised by the Senate.
