Berlin’s closed, creepy and amazing airport

Written by on September 18, 2017

With two currently serving the city and another forever under construction, Berlin is not short on airports. But the most fascinating of them all permanently closed its runways almost a decade ago. Located in the southern half of the former West Berlin, Tempelhof Airport was one of the city’s main gateways from 1923 to 2008. During the latter half of its life it served only passengers, but in its earlier years it played the roles of a symbol of Nazi power, a World War II aircraft factory and a crucial link in the Berlin Airlift.
