Flughafen Tempelhof, Berlin

4.4
#88 of 836 in Things to do in Berlin
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.

  • We were on a weekend with the wheel on the road and used the Temple of justice field as a stopover. A great atmosphere, which is determined by the many people and their wind-soaked activities.

  • We arrived in Berlin from Madrid in the evening and we were able to enjoy the comfort and modernity of the airport at the same time we enjoy our first Fassbier in the city. Has trade and several places for meals and snacks. Easy access to the means of displacement to the city, such as buses and metro, but we chose by cab, which was quite reasonable.

  • For me a really interesting park as you are able to explore old airport's grounds. It is located a bit further though so visit only if you have enough time to spare.  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!
  • Fascinating place. Tours are showing you the (almost) entire building with historical stories ranging from pre-WW2 to today.
  • Limited what I can say on this as I went on a pre-booked tour, but it was in German, which I don't understand! The building itself is huge! The tour takes you through the old offices and airport lounges, down onto the landing strip, and through the hidden areas deep inside the building. Interesting place to look around, and the tour guide seemed to know his stuff and had the interest of those who understood! Think tours are available in other languages so just check before visiting.
  • I went for a guided tour and absolutely loved it. Such an interesting history of airport building.
  • A wonderful place with a lot of history! Be sure to go on a guided tour in the old buildings of the airport for an experience you won't get anywhere else. A must-do when visiting Berlin!

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
