"Flughafen (Airport) Tempelhof" History - Cold War Tip by sabsi
History - Cold War, Berlin: 56 reviews and 129 photos
This is the oldest airport in Berlin. It's just a regional one nowadays though because it's in the middle of the city and rather old.
The architecture of the place is terrible (nazi-style) but outside there is a memorial of the 'Luftbruecke' ("air bridge"). During this 11 month blockage of Berlin by the Sovjets in 1948/49 the people of Berlin were provided with food from the air by the allies. You can see two of those planes (which are called 'Rosinenbomber' here - which means raisin bomber) outside the airport building.
Directions: In Tempelhof, which is also the name of a part of town.
