Berlin Tempelhof

TempelhofDuring our stay in Berlin for the Festival of Lights we had the opportunity to visit one of the largest buildings ever, the airport of Berlin Tempelhof. It was first built in 1927, in the mid 1930’s due to growing air traffic, began a massive reconstruction. Being bombed during WW II and rebuilt afterwards, in the late 1940’s it was the airport where planes took off and arrived for the Berlin Airlift. In 2008 the last plane took off and now you can rent the complex for events and fairs.
