English Guided Tour

The Tempelhof airport is the largest architectural monument in Europe. The former airport impresses with its monumental architecture and reflects Berlin´s eventful history. Built between 1936 and 1941, the building stands for the self-display of the National Socialists. In 1948/49, however, the airport also became a symbol of freedom through the Berlin Airlift.

The guided tours of the airport building take an in-depth look at the historical and architectural background. Expert guides lead you to the most interesting places of the imposing building, from the former check-in hall to the areas used by the US Americans and the transit gangways with a view of today´s popular Tempelhofer Feld.
