Tempelhof Park and former Airport
The former airport is a very special place in and for Berlin. It is one of the city's biggest green spaces, now Tempelhofer Feld the biggest park. It used to be Brandenburger Area's most important airport during the Nazi regime as well as after the war. This was the open door from the West into the city, the so called Berlin Airlift of 1948-1949.
The airport's building, a great example of National Socialist-Nazi architecture, used to be one of the biggest buildings in the world. Since 2008, the great hangars and adjacent structures are used for events and rented for office use.
The tracks and fields are now a public park. 386 hectares are open for running, biking, skating and skateboarding. There are designated spaces for grilling, nature conservation, picnics, as well as observation points. Three fenced-in areas are designated for dogs.
"Tempelhofer Feld is a splendid field to enjoy the activities you like in the open air." -Oxana, Student.
