From 10 to 12 June Berlin and its former Tempelhof airport will host an unmissable summer concert full of exceptional guests:
Muse, Royal Blood, The Strokes and Florence + The Machine, just to name a few.
If you are in or are passing through Berlin these days, you absolutely cannot miss a similar location to attend a concert. Tampelhof Airport is a place to visit for its lived history.
It was designed between 1936 and 1939 by the architect Ernst Sagebiel and, at that time, it was the largest European airport and the main link between West Berlin and the rest of the world.
Although the construction of Tempelhof was not completed due to the start of the Second World War, a first plane with aid and supplies landed here in 1948. In 1951 Tempelhof began to welcome civil air traffic again and, the restoration of the damage caused by the war, meant that this could once again become an important German airport.
Tempelhof Airport was completed in 1962 and saw celebrities, athletes and movie stars pass by.
In the early 1970s, the airport becomes too small for the growing demands of new jet planes and air traffic moves to the new Tegel airport. Here only the flights of the American Air Force continue to land, until 2088 when Tempelhof closes definitively.
With a 2014 referendum, the Berliners reject the project to build in this area and the former airport becomes a venue for trade fairs and major events.
