We booked a two hour English speaking tour with THF and it was excellent - largely due to our guide, Celine, being so enthusiastic about her subject. We learned a lot more about the history and importance of the airport than we expected. A must for anyone who wants to enhance understanding of 3rd Reich ambitions and the subsequent divided...

We had to book for an English speaking tour around the airport but our guide really loved the place and she made it so interesting that we were glad we had been there . It was a good insight into old Berlin as well , We saw a lot of the buildings and learnt of their uses both past and... More

Hitler's own airport is a sad reminder of WWII but an interesting place to visit for people interested in history. The now defunct buildings are used to house refugees so at least it's been put to good use.

Of course, the US didn't do it alone, but I think it's fair to say we pulled the biggest oar. When you arrive for the tour, go into the General Aviation Building through the two sliding glass doors. The tours form up inside the building, where there is a room just off the waiting area where one checks in. I... More

Which we did before leaving the UK. Celine was our guide and she was excellent. We went all around this enormous building explaining pre-war, WW2 and cold war history as well as commercial air operations. We couldn't go onto the apron or into the hangers for obvious reasons but that's no hardship given the circumstances. Gas bunkers (rather than air... More

It's difficult to work out where to go - there's no signage or an obvious entrance. We followed a large group of people into what we thought was an entrance but was in fact a tour group and got shouted at in German. The tour guide wasn't interested in telling us where to go either. After wondering around the outside... More

Really enjoyed this tour - if you book in advance the emailed ticket has a map of how to get to the GAT office, and the photo attached shows what you're looking for! The tour is part aviation and part history of the building from the 1930s through to today - a number of areas visited are not so much... More

I did a small guided tour in German - just so I could get inside the building - fortunately I can understand German, so I got the gist of the commentary. The whole place is amazing - and I was gobsmacked at its size and the fact that the Germans (Nazis) built it in the 1930s. We had an extensive... More

If you enjoy architecture on a huge scale then this is a must, a really stunning piece of work and a crucial part of Berlin and Cold War history. Just be sure you know exactly where to go to sign up for the tour, don't be a twit like me and think "oh I'll just rock up to Tempelhof and... More

I've wanted to visit Tempelhof since I first saw Harry Palmer walk through the terminal in 'Funeral in Berlin'! The official tour takes you from the top to the very bottom of this amazing structure, and our guide provided a fascinating insight into the history of the airport - there was a lot to learn and absorb in the two...
