Public Tours

The former airport’s main building is the largest listed monument in Europe. And yet it is far from a museum, choosing rather to remain a lively location and site of a wide array of different events throughout the year. As a result, certain spaces can temporarily be closed to the public, which means that the thematic focus of the tours is subject to change.

Tour highlights:

  • The entrance hall designed in a monumental style by architect Ernst Sagebiel with an original height of 15 metres.

  • The 18 metre-high and 100 metre-long check-in hall contains the counters where airline passengers had checked-in when the airport was still in operation.

  • The so-called “Ballsaal” (“ballroom”) located above the check-in hall where the Americans set up sport facilities including a sport hall after 1945.

  • The rooftop terrace where visitors can get a spectacular panoramic view over vast parts of Berlin, Tempelhof Park and the large arching airport hangars.

  • The railway tunnel features a decommissioned railway track that runs along the entire building and crosses under the terminal building.

  • The air-raid shelter contains several cellar rooms that were used as shelters during WW II.

  • The film bunker was used to store highly flammable material such as celluloid film in strict secrecy. The entire bunker burned down and remains unchanged in this sooty state till date.

Changes in tour routes may occur as a result of certain events taking place on the site. In exceptional cases on certain days, the tours must be cancelled entirely. These days are marked in gray in the online ticket shop. Please note that tours will not take place if the number of participants is less than five people.


Unfortunately, as a result of the existing building structure, our tours cannot be adapted to the needs of the disabled.
