Guided tours through the largest architectural monument in Europe – 300,000 square meters of history
If Tempelhof airport could talk, it would have a lot to tell. Fortunately, the expert guides are in charge of that. During the two-hour guided tours, they will explore the most exciting places of the 300,000-square-meter airport building with you and reveal the truth behind the numerous legends: How many underground floors are there really? Is there a basement even under the airfield? And do kilometer-long tunnels really lead into Berlin's city center?
At the same time, every guided tour is a journey through time and Berlin's eventful history. After all, the airport construction planned by Ernst Sagebiel in 1936 is a symbol of both oppression and freedom. Forced laborers toiled in the hangars during World War II, and one floor up, U.S. soldiers played basketball during the 1948/49 Airlift. During the division of Germany, the Tempelhof airport remained the gateway to the free world for many people.
Public tours take place daily (except Tuesdays) at set times. Also, you can book private guided tours for groups.
