    Here stands the Airlift Monument - lovingly called "Hungerharke" by the Berliners due to its shape. It symbolizes the three entrance and excursion corridors on which the raisin bombers flew in to Tempelhof in order to supply the trapped Berliners with food and raw materials.

    The Platz der Luftbrücke is a Berlin transport hub on the border between the districts Tempelhof and Kreuzberg. On the square is the entrance to the former Tempelhof Airport. The buildings around the square house mainly public administration facilities, especially the police headquarters. Not far away is the Victoria Park as a resort. The name of the square commemorates the Berlin Airlift of 1948/1949.

    The complete space of the Airlift is to be redesigned in the near future. At the moment, the Airlift Monument and some signs remind of the time of the blockade.

    Here is another piece of history. Anyone who knows a little about the past here will be devoutly standing before her. That's what happened to me. Thank you to the men and women who made everything possible at that time.
