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. 

Public guided tours through the airport building take an in-depth look at the historical and architectural background. The tour »The Myth of Tempelhof« leads 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 Tempelhofer Feld. The underground floors with bunkers, air-raid shelters and vaulted cellars, around which many legends still entwine today, are the focus of the guided tour »Hidden Places«. A special tip for architecture-loving amateur photographers are special photo tours that offer a variety of unique motifs under expert guidance.
