The former Tempelhof airport was once one of the world's busiest transport hubs. In 2008, it closed permanently and became a community park, where
- sports and
- other social events
are held around the twin runways.
You are free to skate, run, bike, fly a kite, walk your dog or just enjoy a drink in the beer garden.
Originally the Tempelhofer Feld was a parade ground. When the military cleared the site, the locals would swarm in to enjoy wideness. As today families would come with their baskets and enjoy a picnic or have a barbecue on one of many lawns.
There are other entrances at Columbiadamm and Oderstraße. They are open from sunrise to sunset.
