Visited this now mothballed airport for registration for kids running Berlin marathon, the registration was here, 40,000 people in one morning! The scale and architecture are incredible, and the forward thinking and innovation such as the covered area for aircraft arrivals, very impressive Didn't know anything about the significance of this airport, either architecturally or in the context of the...

The tour takes you behind the scenes of what used to be the biggest airport in the world. Even if you're not super into architecture or history I would still recommend doing the tour because you just end up seeing so much! Our guide was very well read about the place and carried pictures with him so that we could... More

After getting a tip from one of our hostel roommates a year ago, me, my boyfriend and his brother and sister rented bikes and had a tour all around Berlin when we visited it last summer. We literally sat on the bikes for nearly ten hours straight, and two-three of those was spent at Flughafen Tempelhof. It was so much... More

I used to life in Berlin from 1950 to 1985. This tour is great. The tour is going behind the sceneries behind the former city airport in Berlin. The conductor has got a great knowledge and I strongly recommend this tour.

A fantastic way to spend a couple of hours. A guided tour of the airport built during the Nazi period and used by the Americans in the Cold War. The English speaking guide was excellent

If you go, take a tour. The 2 hour tour gives you a brief overview to the history of the airlifts and Tempelhof - it is also not expensive.

A must see - ok, it was built by the Nazis - but monumental architecture from this period is so rare, and Tempelhof Airport is so impressive. We also did the tour which was facinating and thoroghly recommendable.

I participated in the English guided tour, really exhaustive and well done, the guide was a Czech guy who explained really well the history of the airport and its usage first by the nazi who have built it then by the soviet and last by the allied forces and civil aviation. An impressive building, still largely unfinished with many stories... More

This is an incredible airport that only stopped commercial flights 6 years ago. Approaching the front of the airport is quite weird as the signage looks quite current but the building is obviously not being used for flights any more. As far as I know the only way to see around the building is to book a tour. there are... More

In a nice neighbourhood in Kreuzberg Tempelhof is now a park and a huge runway perfect for riding bikes. It's a good cruise there from pretty much anywhere and a surviving example of Nazi architecture. Nice change from the round of museums. Don't go out of your way to visit but go there just to change it up
