Tempel­hof Air­port

Tempelhof Airport was built from 1936 to 1941 and was once the world’s largest building, featuring 307,000 square metres of indoor space along with a roof that could hold seating for eighty thousand air-show spectators. While serving as a monumental showpiece during the Nazi era, the airport later became a symbol of freedom during the post-war era with the Berlin Airlift. Since its closure in 2008, its seven hangars have accommodated refugees, social projects, cultural events, and sporting meets.
