Tempelhof is one of the oldest civilian airports and it was designed by the Nazi architect Albert Speer.
It is located inside the city, just next to buildings - which is by itself very funny. It's a tiny airport and it's a pleasure to fly from or to, but even if not - you can just go inside and get impressed by the architecture and the grandeur - and Nazi architecture. It's easy to imagine how it was full of swastikas.
An airport with style.

This is where the west also flew in supply to the sieged Berlin after World War II (Luftbrücke). A monument with explanations are just outside of the airport

U6 to Platz der Luftbrücke and you are just there.
