Create an itinerary including Tempelhof Airport
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.

  • Great place to visit on bikes. We didn’t do the tour as we had great weather and didn’t want to be inside. Worth a visit. Cycle the runway...

  • A can't miss sight, that I somehow managed to miss the first two times I visited Berlin, Tempelhof is something you won't find anywhere else. Formerly the East Berlin airport, rather than renovate or tear it down, it's been largely converted to public and park space. It hosted the marathon expo, and is the perfect space for events. The main arrival hall is still there as are baggage claims, passport control, and of course the runways. The hangars host massive event space and the grounds are perfect for exploring green spaces and maybe even taking a picnic..
  • Loved the tour!!!! Amazing to see all the parts of the airport, interesting facts. Loved our guide. Order tickets online at least 24h before your tour, important to pickup tickets on the spot, before the start of your tour, to not lose your spot on the tour. Thank you so much for having this tour of this airport. Would definitely recommend to visit ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Massively worth a visit. There are so few places in the world where you can wander around an airfield that has hosted so much history. There are informative boards that explain the history of the place before and after its development as an airport, and it gives you such a sense of how large a runway really is!
  • Took part in the English speaking tour of the airport. Ben, our guide, was amazing; hugely insightful, easy to listen to, a great teacher, and very funny. You get to see some incredible things on this tour, the airport itself is astounding, but the extra parts, bunkers and stories surrounding them are just incredible.
  • Simply wow. The tour was long and detailed. The staff had great knowledge and were open to questions. We only speak English and so paid for an English tour; the guide spoke excellent English and the airport has so much to offer. Highly recommend for any history lovers like myself. Worth noting that the building (info/ticket office) was difficult to find (we did not buy tickets online and only just managed to get tour tickets as they were quite popular. Worth booking ahead). The building you need to look for is the GAT building. There is an office in that building with friendly staff who can help.
