Were Hitler's speeches in the Reichstag open to the public?

No need to be rude xcalibur... :) There are no stupid questions...

Besides, were common people allowed to watch the reichtag as they were in seisson, common questions etc. I know the diffrence, but in Sweden the public is allowed to watche our riksdag in session unless it's something very special i figure. Was something like that permitted. Maybe only for party members... (?)

Of course they were! Goebbels made his darnd'est to have every German listen to them on their radios but they were also recorded and replayed over loud-speaker systems all over Germany for those who couldn't afford a radio. In fact a famous propaganda picture of that time shows eager ears tuning into a radio broadcast over the text 'Der Führer spricht' = the fuhrer speaks. Some of his best performances were indeed before the Reichstag - not least his 'reply to Roosevelt' in 1939.
