Top Activities at Flughafen Tempelhof

This unique space in the middle of southern Berlin was one of the city's airports until it closed in 2008. Now a public park, Tempelhof's boundless opportunities for fun paired with a turbulent history make it one of the most fascinating places in Berlin.

Steeped in history

The first flight from Tempelhof was made in 1909 and in 1948 the famous Berlin Airlift took place here. Take a fascinating tour of the secret underground part of the building!

Do a cycle tour, rollerblade, or kiteboard along the tarmac where jumbo jets once taxied. Dogs are also welcome in the dog run!

Quaint but headstrong

Tempelhof captures the true Berliner spirit, with community gardens in the park. Locals recently rejected plans to build an apartment complex on the on the old airfield!

BBQ time!

There are three designated places to enjoy a barbecue on the field - look out for the word "Grillplatz." These are located in the south-west, south-east and northern areas.

Enjoy life slowly

You don't even need to come to Tempelhof with a purpose. After some food in the hip Neukölln neighborhood, just drop by for a stroll or catch the sunset.

Tempelhof Airport: Our Tips

When to visit

The park is open and worth a visit all year round, but you'll find that as far as outdoor activities go, it really comes to life in the spring and summer.

Opening hours

The opening and closing times vary by season - in June and July, the height of summer, it's open for most of the day, from 6:00AM to 10:30PM. In the winter, it can close as early as 5:00PM. As a guideline, it's open from sunrise to sunset.


Free all year round! Be sure to factor in sports equipment rentals from independent sellers, however.

Getting there

There are two main points of entry. Tempelhof station (on the U6 and Ringbahn) is, as the name suggests, directly across the street from the park. On the north-east side, there's Boddinstraße station (on the U8), a 10-minute walk away from the entrance.

Good to Know

  • When to visit
    Generally speaking, the park is open from sunrise to sunset, which can vary greatly by season.

What People Are Saying About Tempelhof Airport

We enjoyed the tour, but not to everyones interest.

Impressive structure of 1930's National socialism architecture. I think the tour could have been improved by a short video presentation showing archives and the Berlin airlift. From the nearest Ubahn we found the meeting point hard to find, we had to ask a number of times for its location. Better directions on the ticket would have been helpful. Overall enjoyed the experience.

Historically ample and interesting tour to a magnificent building.

The guide took good care at taking us all around this impressive Nazzi-built airport building and providing the neccessary historical details on the events related to the site and more. We got to see some historical photos as well as hear testimonies of the soldiers that, say, participated in Berlin airlift and lived to tell their stories personally to the Tempelhof tour guide. It is a real highlight not to miss in the middle of Berlin.

Fascinating tour of extraordinary building

Thoroughly enjoyed this guided tour behind the scenes, onto the roof and into the depths of the airport building. Very knowledgeable guide got lots of information across with touches of humour and across in excellent English. Fascinating two hours - could have been even longer.

Informative, interesting, the right pace and length

Our guide Celine spoke perfect English and knew her stuff. All questions were answered, she remembered mine from early on by illustrating the answer at the end, two hours later.

Excellent tour for anyone who is interested in Berlin history

The meeting point was easy to find - its the GAT building. The guide spoke perfect english and was very interesting and open to questions. The tour involves a lot of walking but the 2 hours duration is just perfect. You get to discover a lot about this building and you get to learn a lot about Nazi Germany, and about the the divided Berlin. Its a great way to spend an afternoon - specially when its cold/rainy outside.
