The Tempelhofer Feld, once a key airport in Berlin, now serves as one of the world’s largest inner-city public parks. Known for its vast, open spaces and unique history, Tempelhofer Feld is a beloved local gem and a must-visit for the adventurous traveler.

History: Tempelhofer Feld has left its mark in history as the site of the Berlin Airlift in 1948-49. Post its closure as an operational airport in 2008, it was transformed into a public park in 2010, preserving the runways and becoming a symbol of urban reuse and community space.

Location: Situated in the heart of the city, stretching over Neukölln and Tempelhof districts, this colossal park has become an essential part of Berlin’s urban experience.

Features: Preserved runways, large green spaces, and the airport infrastructure, including the terminal building (which is a protected historic site), frame the park’s remarkably flat terrain. The park’s wide-open spaces are perfect for cycling, walking, dog walking, gardening, bird-watching, and a variety of outdoor activities.

Things to do:

  1. Outdoor Activities: The park is a paradise for sports enthusiasts – enjoy cycling, rollerblading, jogging, kitesurfing, BBQs, and more.
  2. Explore Urban Gardening: Visit the urban gardens run by locals, an embodiment of Berlin’s green initiatives.
  3. Bird Watching: The park is home to various bird species. Don’t forget your binoculars!
  4. Historical Tours: Discover Tempelhof Airport’s history through guided tours of the historic airport building.
  5. Attend Events: The park hosts a variety of festivals, concerts, and events throughout the year.

Tips: The park is open year-round with no entry fee. It’s easily accessible via public transportation. Some parts of the park are reserved for wildlife protection and aren’t accessible to the public.
