The airport building in Tempelhof is a
unique structure with a multi-faceted
past. After the shutdown in 2008, the
listed airport is being successfully
used as a venue for tradeshows,
exhibitions, conventions, events,
design and music festivals as well as
sports events. The airport building is
the ideal presentation location in the
German capital.
One important step for the revitalization of the airport building is the refurbishment of the former officers’ hotel
of the U.S. Air Force at the Platz der
Luftbrücke. Creative workplaces of
the future will be located here. In
combination with restaurants, cafes
and a visitor center for the increasing
number of tourists, the airport building will again become a lively urban
place in Berlin.
The location has ideal access to the
public transportation system. The
subway stations Platz der Luftbrücke
and Paradestraße (U6) as well as
the commuter train station Tempelhof
are within walking distance to the
former airport area. Car drivers need
three minutes to get to the freeway A
100, the Berlin City Ring. The future
airport Berlin-Brandenburg is 20
minutes’ drive away, the exhibition
grounds 10 minutes. The next station
serving ICE and regional trains is 5
minutes away.
Former office and administration
blocks are being gradually refurbished and rented out. The historic
facilities are mostly reserved for
companies in creative industries and
The airport building is immediately
adjacent to the popular neighborhood
Bergmannkiez in the borough of
Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg as well as
the Platz der Luftbrücke in Tempelhof-Schöneberg. The Potsdamer
Platz is just as easy to reach as the

For refurbishment and use, the
Tempelhof Projekt GmbH is looking
for a private investor who would autonomously assume the arrangement
and the operation of this part of the
building. Currently, there is an ongoing declaration of interest procedure.
