Spend a relaxing Sunday at an old airport in Berlin
Share on Pinterest


“My favourite place to spend a hot Sunday evening, enjoy a barbecue with good food, summery salads and a cold wine on this amazing location.”

While Berlin has a lot of parks, Tempelhof is an unique one. It’s majestic, magical and mesmerizing. You can walk around for hours over the old airstrips, feel the Berlin breeze go through your hair while there is space all around you.

The Tempelhof Airport in Berlin was once the largest and busiest in Germany, and one of Europe’s iconic airports of the pre-World War II era. After the airport closed in 2008, the city of Berlin reclaimed the 386-hectare open space and one of the world’s largest buildings in a central location for public use.

Today, the area has a six-kilometer cycling, skating and jogging trail, a 2.5-hectare BBQ area, a dog-walking field covering around four hectares and an enormous picnic area for all visitors. One of the most popular activities in Tempelhof is still related flying, but the gigantic machines that once occupied the airspace over the airport has now been replaced by kites!

Enjoy a springtime picknick or welcome the summery nights with a cosy barbecue!
