Flughafen Tempelhof, Berlin
(4.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Iconic due to the enormous canopied hangers that protected passengers from the elements when boarding or disembarking the plane, Flughafen Tempelhof is now Berlin's largest public park. The main terminal buildings and hangers play host to numerous events, conferences, and fairs, such as fashion tradeshows and concerts. The size makes this an ideal location for competitive sports, like the Berlin Marathon. Enjoy a day on the green and visit the massive architectural wonders that once represented the world's largest, most advanced airport. Keep your eyes open for species of birds, insects, and plant life that were close to being endangered, but have now begun to reclaim the airport's land. Put Flughafen Tempelhof into our Berlin family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Berlin.

  • Of course, the US didn't do it alone, but I think it's fair to say we pulled the biggest oar. When you arrive for the tour, go into the General Aviation Building through the two sliding glass doors. T...  more »

  • I didn't think that a guided tour of a disused airport would be so fascinating, but there you have it! This building is enormous and an incredible reminder of the power and audacity of Nazi Germany. Built at the height of Hitlers rule, this airport was the jewel in the crown of Nazi architecture and was once the largest indoor building in the world. Floor after floor of empty corridors and rooms, it was easy to imagine it full of people, suitcase in hand our hoards of excited people arriving to watch Hitler give one of his famous speeches from the humongous grass area near the run way. Bring comfy walking shoes, a camera and stay close to your guide because you don't want to get lost!
  • If you're not taking a guided tour of the inside of this historic airport, it's still worth a visit for anyone, especially those interested in aviation. Enjoy a walk in the public art section or the urban garden. Obviously, for those who are interested in cycling, this is heaven. Even though I didn't cycle, I can only imagine what a rush one would get when cycling down the main runway. There's also green areas for playing soccer, relaxing and a dog park. Via public transport, I'd suggest taking the U-Bahn to the Platz der Luftbrucke station. From there you can take the 104 bus two stops and get off at Columbiadamm. At this point is access to the airport field.
  • Visit Tempelhof building with a guide - you have to book in advance for a fee for this. Be prepared for a good walk! There's also plenty of opportunity to take photographs.
  • Great out for place all year around. It's bigger than Central Park! People bike, skate, fly kites, wind/kite surf,....
  • It's great place in summer: you can meet friends, do sports or have a barbecue (there are assigned barbecue places). If it's really hot, make sure that you bring enough water and use sun screen.
