Tour to the Tempelhof Park between history and legends
The airport was founded in 1923 in the southern part of the Tempelhof-Schöneberg district and, being one of the first airfields to be built in Europe, it acquired a certain importance right from the start. So much so that the British architect Norman Foster defines it as the “mother of all airports”. The last plane takes off from its runways in 2008. The structure encloses ancient legends but also most of the events of the Nazi World War II.
Through a tour of about two hours you can find out i myths and tales enclosed in bunker and in underground tunnels. Not only that: anti-aircraft shelters, control rooms and military structures of the American allies. Tempelhof becomes a real history lesson in the open.
