  • An interesting history that no admission cost and where to get a free great leadership on certain days (Saturday & Sunday). The exhibits there are on the open space or in halls. The airport in the ehmaligen tower are further exhibitions. Who likes can give a donation to the output, which is not mandatory but.

  • The Museum is located in a suburb of Berlin. Get to it was not. Bought a ticket for 2.6 euros. The Metro came to S + U Rathaus Spandau. A couple of minutes searched bus stop 135 heading into Podsdam. With the same ticket sat down in it and through 30 minutes left at the Kurpromenade. After a 10 minute promenade on the private sector, so much napomnivshemu some new Russian holiday villages. Ended up at the entrance to the Museum. Part of the exhibits be open-air. But there is an exposition in hangars where removed rarities 1and 2-nd world war. Not a bad souvenir shop. With a huge selection of aircraft models, insignia Ljuftvafe of different times. You can also purchase real samples of NATO, German uniforms, helmets, shoes, boots, belts and other equipment. To the pluses you can also include free admission and free parking. Availability of holiday destinations where you can sit down and take a breath from a lot of time walking around the Museum. Well, by cons lack of decent cafe where you can grab a bite to eat. There are vending machines only water, coffee, sweets and other little edible rubbish on your screen. Generally informative and very interesting place. Certainly not compared to our in Monino, and even more so with a Museum in Le Bourget. Smaller. Easier. But cute and intimate. Recommended to visit in the presence of dry solder with them. On the way back, before boarding the subway you can stroll through the District of Spandau. Where in contrast to the central districts of Berlin shops work even on Sundays.

  • This is a fairly new museum of military aviation, with a new hangar due to open this year - which we were privileged to see in advance - on the German Luftwaffe airfield which then became RAF Gatow an...  more »

  • I'm not a keen of military subjects or war history but it was really great experience for me to see all those aircrafts, radars and weapons. There are so many outside and in few hangars. I take away one star in my review because of lack information in English and bad quality of display in hangars. It's all more disorienting than informing. Mix of pictures, artefacts and fragments of radar stations. Anyway it's still worth to visit and really fascinating. Display just need refreshing and modern approach. Place is easy to reach with bus and 20 minutes walk. And it's free. :)
  • Huge display of military exhibits, mostly aircraft that have been in service in the German Luftwaffe in the past decades. Some of them are indoors and in great shape, many of them are placed outdoors exposed to the weather and therefore less well maintained. Definitely worth a visit if you're an aviation fan
  • Due to the division of Germany the museum features a rich selection of aircraft from both west and east. Any type flown since 1945 is on display outdoors. In the hangars there is a historical exhibition including older aircraft (closed until 2017) and an exhibition on the history of the German Air Force with all major aircraft in superb condition indoors. Definitely one of the best (military) aircraft museums in Germany. Keep in mind the museum is an old airport and there are quite some distances to walk if you want to see all areas and you need some hours for all exhibitions. It's a bit hard to reach by public transport so leave early to enjoy all the aircraft.
  • Very impressive airplane collection with additions coming. It's definitely a plus that it's free. If you're into military aircraft, definitely worth it.
  • Its a good place for a walk. The planes are far one from the other and there are hardly any information in English. Compared with the museum in Cracow, Poland, it is very poor when it comes to exhibits and overall layout.

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.
