Iconic due to the enormous canopied hangers that protected passengers from the elements when boarding or disembarking the plane, Tempelhof Airport 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 Tempelhof Airport and other Berlin attractions into our Berlin online trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Me and my wife are traveling around the world in last 2 years and have been in multiple museums and tours. We both are architects by occupation and very much interested in any architectural examples a specially ones we have learned about in school. I was very much excited about this tour. I knew that this will be a 2 hour tour and was ready for it. The tour started with us standing in a sun for 20 min while listening to our tour guide whispering, yes he was literally whispering some facts about this place and making some strange jokes. Next came a lot of useless information and a lot of standing around in a small rooms . A lot of pointless walking, taking elevators, to just listening to the guide in landings of the floor. Most of that information was somewhat bit irrelevant, such as info about restaurants that opened in the building or every statistics per year how many passengers were flying in and out. This all can be shortened and not take 2 hours, in my opinion this tour is a bit too long. This next issue that I had was with this specific guide and not with the tour. Before we started our tour I have noticed that other tour guide from other group was stressing the fact that most of the tour is inside of the building, therefore the masks must be worn at all the times while inside. Our guide did not say anything about masks (he had one on his elbow) while having some cough once in a while. 3/4 of our group were not wearing any masks and that made me feel very uneasy around this tour. Unacceptable, please see my photos to get an idea of the spaces that you will be visiting. I am a very healthy individual and not concerned with COVID ( usually) but this was a bit too much. I usually do review places very positively and have tried to do the same with this place. This place is cool, and history is great, BUT, maybe it was just our tour guide ( hopefully) but my experience with this tour was unfortunately negative. Two hours, in my opinion is too long for this tour, can be done within one hour, just cut out all the walking around small rooms and staircases. Overall a cool place to visit, but think twice if you want to spent two hours standing around in small rooms. There were couple cool spots towards the end of the tour, I with they would just do those. Thank you
  • I heard this was was a very popular tour so booked a few days before I went. Tour guide Ben was very informative and knowledgeable and took us through the airport. You start looking at the check in area and go through what once was a restaurant overlooking the airfield. Other places we saw were hangar number 5, underground air raid bunkers and behind the scenes of where luggage gets to the belts. There is so much to see and you are given time to walk about and take photos. There are a lot of stairs both up and down so this needs to be a factor when booking. The tour was just over 2 hours which went by very quickly. If you like either airports or architecture it’s a good place to visit. It’s currently set up as the THF cinema
  • What a great place! Visitors center offers all the information ℹ️ about history and future of the airport. You can spend there like 30+ minutes to read all the info. It’s free to go there. We were not able to see the main part - hangars. But you can go on the field itself. I recommend renting a bike 🚲 to enjoy the ride and the runway ✈️ on sunny day it’s great place to enjoy your free time!
  • We visited Tempelhof for the Berlin Marathon Expo, and it was such a unique and fun experience - food stalls, trade booths, races on the runway and much more. That said, the airport is worth a visit anyway to see the building itself. The interior of the airport is fascinating and feels frozen in time, complete with old check in desks, luggage carousels, and period architecture. No wonder they film period-specific tv shows and movies here!
  • One of the worlds most legendary airport ever existed! Visited on the last day of my visit to Berlin, unfortunately there was no time slot available to visit the interior, will come back and do this! Book tickets before visiting! We did see the runways, and exterior! Very Dark/cool place!
