Tempelhof Airport’s main building is a historically protected landmark and a symbol of the eventful history of Berlin itself. On the one hand, it is an expression of Nazi ideology and served in World War II as a weapons production site using forced labour. On the other hand, Tempelhof is also a symbol of freedom, and the Air Lift of 1948/49 made the airport famous throughout the world. During the division of Germany the airport was the gateway to freedom for many people.
Over the course of our roughly 2 hour walking tours, we will take you to the most interesting parts of the huge building, which has a surface space of 300,000 square metres.
Our guides will answer your questions about the very special history of the location and about the historical background of the development of the airport.
