In the past, this was the site of airplane takeoffs, engines roaring and the smell of kerosene. Today, inline skates roll over the smooth asphalt, the twittering of the rare skylark fills the air, people meet on the meadows to party and relax.
Welcome to the Tempelhof Field, one of the largest urban open spaces in the world!
Since the former runways and adjacent green spaces were opened for recreational use in May 2010, an oasis for people, animals and plants has emerged in the middle of the capital. The 300-hectare area could easily fit 420 soccer fields, but since that would really be a bit monotonous, everything that's fun is allowed on the Tempelhof Field: Picnicking, gardening, cycling – or just lying in the grass and realizing that freedom can be limitless even under the clouds.
Looking for information on where you can get a coffee on the Tempelhof Field and when particular events are taking place? You can find this and much more information on the pages of the Grün Berlin GmbH. The state-owned, non-profit company responsible for all open space development tasks operates other parks besides the Tempelhofer Field (Gärten der Welt, Britzer Garten, Natur-Park Schöneberger Südgelände, Botanischer Volkspark Blankenfelde-Pankow, Park am Gleisdreieck, Spreepark, Mauerpark, Kienbergpark and the Tegeler Stadtheide).
|The opening hours of the Tempelhof Field are regulated seasonally. After the end of the opening hours, the entrances are closed. After that, you can leave the Tempelhof Field through revolving gates at the main entrances.|
