Time Out says

With a past life as military grounds and an airport, Tempelhof Feld is now accessible to everyone in Berlin

What is it?

Located between Tempelhof-Schöneberg and Neukölln, Tempelhof Feld (meaning ‘field’) was once an airfield before being reclaimed, and is now open to the public. Whether you want to cycle, skateboard, walk your dog, have a summer picnic, or check out urban green spaces, Tempelhof Feld should be your destination.

Why is it worth visiting?

As the largest inner-city open space in the world, Tempelhof Feld is truly unique. Head here if you need a break from touring some of the main Berlin attractions, this is one of the best places to go for a moment of calm. 

Is Tempelhofer free?

The park is open for everyone – free of charge and without needing to book. There were once plans to keep the airport open, but citizen movements to squat there as well as enormous local support for keeping the space open to locals have allowed Tempelhofer to be what it is today. 

Entrances on the southernmost entrance on Oderstraße (Crashgate) are accessible to wheelchair users. All the bathrooms – except the one at the entrance of Columbiadamm - have wheelchair facilities. There are specific parking spaces at the entrances near Columbiadamm and Herrfurthstraße.

Depending on the season, entry times change.

Where’s good to eat nearby?

Tempelhof Feld is 3.5km squared and is adjacent to several neighbourhoods; choosing a place to eat depends on what side of the space you are on. There are plenty of good cafés here, like Cafe BilderBuch.

The Neukölln side is famous for Levantine food, as well as quirky hole-in-the-wall bars and one-of-a-kind restaurants. Have a casual beer at queer bar K-Fetisch, a quick peanut sauce wrap at Sahara Imbiss, or devour vegetarian dumplings at Knödelwirtschaft.
