Bike Touring Highlight
The airport Berlin-Tempelhof was one of the first commercial airports in Germany and took up the regular service in 1923. The area on which the Tempelhof Airport was built - the Tempelhofer Feld - was formerly a parade ground. The first engine flight on Tempelhofer Feld took place in 1909. At the beginning of March 1923, the Junkers Luftverkehrsgesellschaft demonstrated the suitability of the Tempelhofer Feld with special flights from five Junkers F 13 to Leipzig Mockau Airport. The new National Socialist concentration camp KZ Columbia, which was located directly on the new building and opened on December 27, 1934, was closed due to the new building. It was in operation until 5 November 1936 and was demolished in 1938. In 1946, Tempelhof Airport, which is located in the US sector, became the military base mainly used by the USAAF. He got the name Tempelhof Air Base. The airport took on a new meaning in 1948: Together with the airfield Gatow, and later also the airport Tegel, he served during the blockade of West Berlin the transport of food and supplies for Berlin by plane.

A very historical place and to remind it again to younger generations, along the runways various illustrated information boards have been set up!
The fact that you provide the population with the great Arial is not necessarily self-evident.
There are no controls, actually you can do what you want, great.
Let's hope that now the airport building in the next few decades does not expire.

The Tempelhofer Feld is unique: it is a unique selling point of Berlin worldwide. In my opinion it is a huge "open air museum" for the airlift from June 1948 to May 1949.
For me, the airfield is always a crazy experience of space and nature in the middle of the big city; that is really good! And: there is always something going on, there is always a lot to see and do: drink a beer, rent a Segway or just chilled.
